Loire Valley Chateaux Day Trip from Paris

  • Description

Get to our Louvre Agency and board our air-conditioned coach at 7:15am for a day trip to discover the fascinating Loire castles. After a bus ride of about 3 hours, during which you will gaze at typical French landscapes, you will arrive at the Chateau de Chenonceau. 

Visit on your own this architectural masterpiece in a magical setting. Discover its complex history that was marked by the different women who built it throughout the years. This is the reason why the castle is also called the “Ladies’ Chateau”, illustrated by the refined decoration in each room. Thus, the famous Queen Catherine de Medici built the Florentine inspired gallery above the Cher river.

As soon as you will see Chateau de Chambord, you will be blown away by this architectural monster of incomparable beauty, just like straight out of a fairy tale. This Francis I residence is nowadays the symbol of French power and Renaissance art. 

You will walk through the different rooms at your own pace and enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the estate from the top of the Chateau's terrace, accessible by the famous double-spiral staircase. While climbing these steps, you will understand the technical prowess of Leonardo da Vinci, who was the first painter, architect and engineer of King Francis I. 

Over the three floors of the keep, you will observe the many details brought to the realization of this building. Depending on how much time you have left, you can stroll through the park and admire the view of the castle.

You will join your group at the end of this second visit, at around 5pm, and you will be driven back to Paris for an arrival planned around 8pm at our Louvre Agency.
