Angers sends you its warmest greeters

It was the perfect opportunity. In that period of Christmas and New Year "greetings", some Angers inhabitants choose to display their common point of interest : to help the visitors in the discovery of the town. Gathered in a association, they are the "Angers Loire Greeters", and are called that way... in French. They offer to the tourists "to visit Angers as these were with friends" simply because they have a passion for the town they live in and they live with. Five volunteers stride along streets and districts with a few persons staying in Angers for leisure or professional purposes.

"We are in the mood to make share our vision of the city. We offer individualized walks in touch with the main interests, strange places, good ways for shopping, nice green bits... We are on the lookout of life in town and its surroundings in order to mix proposals", says the deputy-chairman of the Angers Loire Greeters, Marie-Claire Planchenault.
