Not only is Le Mans a safe place to walk around it's also lovely, especially the Old Town. In fact the Old Town is possibly the most lovely of the wee Old Towns in all France for it is almost perfectly preserved & there is a real sense of being thrown back in time while wandering the cobbled lanes. It's also relatively undiscovered for some reason so you are relatively unhampered by fellow visitors, even in the height of summer. Small but almost perfectly formed; that is the Plantagenet city.
No problem nice place it gets crowded on motor racing days but you stand a good chance of seeing some nice classic cars parked in the town.
Just take the normal safety measures as you would at home.
