Rue St-Michel, Rennes, France

At first glance, Rennes’ cobblestoned streets and half-timbered homes evoke medieval France. But in the last decade, Brittany’s beautifully preserved capital has evolved into a contemporary cultural center with a packed festival calendar. To experience Rennes’ lively nightlife, visit the bars along Rue St-Michel, nicknamed “Rue de la Soif” (street of thirst). —Laura Neilson
