I have seen many sound and light shows, from Blois castle to Egypt and the Parthenon but the sound and light production of Le Mans tops them all. Five nights a week, from end of June until end of August, and the first three weekends in September, the old Plantagenet city of Le Mans shines with a myriad of shapes and colours, as the stories of the city from Gallo Roman times through the high middle ages to today are projected onto the walls of the city, the cathedral façade and throughout the many magnificiently renovated streets.
Arrive early and park in the Parking des Jacobins, at the foot of the cathedral, and dine in one of the many good restaurants of the old city. The sound and light show begins at sunset, around 21h30. You walk at your own pace, stopping for ten minutes or so infront of each scene.
