If you’re going to Paris there’s one thing you shouldn’t pass up: visiting the Loire Valley Castles. Just a few hours away from the French capital, these prestigious French Renaissance edifices are vestiges of an era when aristocrats showed off their wealth and the Kings of France gave their backing to architectural novelties. Departure from Paris, PARISCityVISION proposes numerous single-day and multiple-day tours and guided visits of the Loire Valley. Here tourists can admire these beautiful, historic edifices and discover the region’s breathtaking landscape registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Accompanied by a guide-interpreter, the PARISCityVISION tours allow you to discover the most beautiful chateaux by coach: Amboise, Chenonceau and Chambord, or even Tour, Cheverny, Clos Lucé, where Leonardo da Vinci once lived, and the Gardens of Villandry. Once there, you’ll be able to visit the chateaux in total liberty and with priority access; in other words, no need to wait in line. A real advantage considering the 5 million visitors per year!
Multiple-day tours are a great way to discover a wide variety of sites and to appreciate each chateau’s distinctive features (architecture, hunting grounds, landscaped gardens, banks of the Cher River, etc.). The Loire Valley sightseeing tour is another fantastic option to make the most of your comings and goings while also staying the night in a comfortable 3-star hotel.
To get a taste of everything the region has to offer, why not take advantage of your visit and enjoy a Loire Valley wine tasting? You can even reserve for small groups or make the tour private and combine an initiation to oenology with guided visits of the Chenonceau and Chambord chateaux.
