Getting Around Le Mans
Le Mans has a pretty good public transportation system with buses and trams. Visiting the old city is done on foot, but anything outside, particularly the circuit, you will need transportation.
As you would expect anywhere in France, there are many restaurants in Le Mans. There are about 250 restaurants, most located in the old city or close to it. Most of the restaurants are classical French style, but you will find other ethnic style foods.
Most restaurants are moderately priced.
