Tour Solidor is a fascinating little maritime museum where you can a great deal from just a few rooms. Saint-Servan, where it is situated is, in itself, a lovely place to go, and from which to get great views of St. Malo

Lovely scenery from the harbor to Solidor, nice restaurants in the area. We were not so lucky with the weather, so I assume it could be much more enjoyable.

I have been to this area so many times...it's probably my favorite part of the St Servan area of St Malo. Just a couple of bars and restaurants and lovely views across the bay. The tower itself is well worth a look too !
