Morlaix is one of the great old Breton ports. Today this city is a lively mixture of markets and shops, steep valleys and old stone and half timber houses and charming cobbled streets.

Brest was another important port and military town but today boasts plenty of modern additions, including the spectacular Pont d I’llroise bridge. With a large university, Brest buzzes with life from its bars and cafes to its busy local shops. The Oceanopolis aquarium is a wonderful place for the whole family while windswept walks along the spectacular coastline or a boat trip to the sea-horse shaped Ile d’Ouessant will blow away any cobwebs.
