Loire Valley

Major Cities

Situated at the junction of the Loire and Cher rivers, Tours is an excellent base for visiting the region`s magnificent châteaux. The original home of the French language and the "art de vivre", Tours is a land of harmony and proportion. Today, it is a modern, lively center; with a thriving university, cultivating economic development.

Blois, a hillside city on the Loire River, is a piece of living history, with cobblestone streets and restored white houses with slate roofs and red brick chimneys. Some of its "streets" are mere alleyways originally laid out in the Middle Ages, or lanes linked by a series of stairs. Blois is famous for its chateau, the Château Royal de Blois is a former royal palace with ornate chambers, and paintings and sculptures from the 16th to 19th centuries.

Only an hour away from Paris, Orléans is the capital of the Loire Valley and is famous for two reasons: Joan of Arc and the "Chateaux" in the region. In 1429, Joan of Arc relieved the city from attacks by the Burgundians and the English. That deliverance is celebrated every year on May 8, the anniversary of her victory.

Amboise is a charming medieval town on the banks of the Loire River, 14 miles east of Tours. Today, a small market town, it was once home of the French royal court and the birthplace of Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci spent his last years here. Château d'Amboise is a 15th-century château, a combination of Gothic and Renaissance styles, often associated with Charles VIII.
