What to expect

If you're staying in Paris, don't miss the chance to visit the Loire Valley region! This full-day excursion from Paris includes Chambord, Chenonceau and Amboise castles!

In the early morning, your driver will pick you up in Paris and drive through the countryside of La Beauce, l’Orléanais and la Tourraine to reach the Loire Valley (2-hour drive). Also called the 'Valley of the Kings', it features 25 palaces built by the kings, embellished with parks and gardens.

The first castle you'll visit is Chambord, the most fascinating chateau of the Loire Valley. King François 1st realized a dream in designing an architectural masterpiece combining the tradition of the French master masons with the lightness of Italian Renaissance buildings. Attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, its design is distinguished by its incredible double-return stairs.

The next stop is Chenonceau, also called the 'ladies castle', the former residence of Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis Queen of France. The castle is remarkable not only for its architecture but also for the fine quality of its collections including Renaissance furniture, 16th and 17th-century tapestries, and a great number of masterpieces. You will spend a couple of hours in this charming place where you can also have a quick delicate lunch on your own at the castle’s restaurant called l’Orangerie before joining Amboise.

Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, the Chateau d'Amboise introduced the Italian style to the Loire Valley. It features an exceptional collection of gothic and Renaissance furniture. In the castle’ St Hubert chapel you will pay a visit to the Da Vinci tomb recently renovated. In Amboise, you will visit the famous PLOU family cellars and enjoy a wine tasting session.

You'll be driven back to your hotel at around 7.00 pm.
