NANTES

Nantes, in the west of France, is a vibrant city, full of history, impressive monuments and cultural interests. Between the Château des Ducs de Bretagne, Machines de l’Île, the Passage Pommeraye and Creative Arts District, the city effortlessly balances tradition with modernity 

Traversed by the Loire River and close to the Atlantic, Nantes prides itself on its commitment to green, eco-responsible progress, famously named European Green Capital in 2013.  Its proximity to both Paris, Normandy and the coast place Nantes in a very desirable position for rugby tourists. 

Stade de la Beaujoire left its mark on Rugby World Cup 2007 when Fiji stunned Wales 38-34 in their pool match to reach the quarter-finals.  Wales return in 2023, alongside Ireland, Japan, Argentina and those qualifying from play-off matches to do battle in this enchanting city.  

PARIS

Arguably the world’s most picturesque city, the French capital oozes class and culture around each of its twenty arrondissements. 

A short distance from the centre of Paris lies the energetic district of Saint-Denis.  Here, you’ll find the Basilica of Saint-Denis, Street Art Avenue and the Cité du Cinéma, a film studio complex and celebration of the art of cinema. 

As the venue for the opening match and RWC 2023 Final, Saint-Denis is also home to the country’s largest sporting venue, the Stade de France, host to the 1998 FIFA World Cup, 2003 IAAF World Championships, Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016. 

MARSEILLE

Marseille, France’s main port, is known as the ‘Gateway to the Orient’. This cosmopolitan city, open to the world from its prime position on the Mediterranean Sea, has been an important cultural and commercial crossroads.

Energise whilst there with climb to Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde (‘Good Mother’) which overlooks the city, stroll through the legendary Panier district, or relish a bouillabaisse at the Old Port.  Escape the bustle of the city by hiking the trails of the Sormiou or Sugiton calanques, rocky inlets which offer breath-taking views over the sea.

Known for its passion for sport, Marseille welcomes Rugby World Cup 2023 to the Stade Vélodrome, after the successful hosting of the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016.   The undoubted highlight will be Vélodrome’s hosting of two Quarter-Final clashes across the weekend of 14-15 October 2023.
