Original gift ideas for Christmas

We’ve concocted a selection of Christmas gift ideas that your nearest and dearest are guaranteed to adore.

All of Angers at a fantastic price

Got a friend, aunty or grandparent that loves historical sites? If so, offer them a full Angevin experience with a Christmas Angers City Pass. From 30 November 2019 to 5 January 2020 only, Angers Tourist Office has reduced the 24-hour City Pass to €12 instead of €15. This pass gives you access to twenty or so of the best sites in Angers and around, like Angers Castle and the Apocalypse Tapestry, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the David d’Angers gallery and many more.
As well as free entry to these sites, pass holders will enjoy four surprises, included with the City Pass.

Passes are available to order online or can be purchased at Angers Tourist Office.

A little piece of Angers for Christmas

There’s no need to break the bank either – we have affordable gifts that you and yours are bound to love. With the illustrated Angers souvenir range, you have a choice of attractive brightly coloured gifts at great prices. Treat those who love bike rides to a bike bell, give a notebook to a brother or sister who likes to scribble things down and find enamel mugs for a coffee loving friend. There are three illustrated designs to choose from on the themes of heritage, nature, and food and wine.

All-inclusive site-seeing weekend in Angers

Give loved ones the ideal surprise gift of a weekend getting away from it all in Angers and around. Our gift packages have been designed with a choice of different themes, including a romantic weekend in the vineyards, a city break weekend in Angers and a unique weekend in Terra Botanica along the banks of the Loire.

Weekend breaks are available to book online, or by visiting or calling the Tourist Office. Our packages make a fantastic last minute gift solution, if you happen to have got behind on your Santa list!

A guided tour to discover the secrets of the city

Got relatives coming to visit you in Angers over the holidays? Why not treat them to or suggest they go on a themed guided tour? You’ll have the opportunity to discover or rediscover some of Angers best-kept secrets, historical buildings and delicacies together, with our brand-new tours of the episcopal residence, special Christmas food tour or an Angers history tour. There is even a special tour for families with children, where you’ll learn about Angers in Gallo-Roman times in a fun and interesting way.

Treat someone to a ticket to a show

If you have culture, music or theatre lovers in your entourage, slip them an envelope under the Christmas tree with a performance ticket inside. You can book them in advance through the Tourist Office’s online ticketing office (only available in French). What another great last minute gift idea!
