Carnac is well worth a visit as there are many prehistoric reamins to be seen in the area including more than 3,000 menhirs spread over a distance of three kilometers. The Musée Miln-Le-Rouzic traces the history of mankind from 450,000BC. The largest grave mound in Europe is to be found at the Tumulus St-Michel.
St-Malo is an idyllic port completed surrounded by the old walls. A walk along the top of the walls offers wonderful views over the old town, the harbour and out to sea. Trips can be taken from here to the Channel Island of Jersey. Quiberon is on the wildly romantic rocky coastline with many sheltered bays and coves. It is easy to reach Morbihan along the E 60 or by fast TGV train from Paris.
