Overview

Come and live an exceptional day in the heart of the Loire Valley in France. You will visit the Chateau de Chenonceau and the Chateau de Chambord with our guide, two of the greatest castles of the Loire Valley. This dive into French history will be completed by a visit to the Clos Lucé castle, the emblematic place of the famous Leonardo da Vinci. Take a seat in an air-conditioned vehicle, departure from the center of Paris at 7:15 am!

You will drive to Chenonceau through the magnificent landscapes of the Loire Valley. You will contemplate the fields as far as the eye can see and will go along the Loire River at times offering a serenity to the trip. During the trip, our guide will give you some information about the sites you will see. You will then drive along a beautiful tree-lined driveway that offers an incredible view of the castle. Our guide will give you a presentation of this sumptuous royal residence nicknamed “The Ladies’ Castle” because it was maintained and enriched by several female characters over the years. The exterior setting with the building seeming to emerge from the water gives a fairy tale dimension to the castle. You will enjoy a one-hour guided tour of the castle of Chenonceau during which you will contemplate the furnished and flowered rooms, the tapestries and the period paintings. Our guide will tell you many stories and anecdotes about the castle and the importance of the female presence which testifies to the French art of living.

After this visit of Chenonceau, you will have free time to stroll in the remarkable gardens along the Cher River and have lunch around the castle. Our guide will show you several places where you can have lunch. You will be invited to meet the guide directly at the bus parking lot to leave for Amboise to discover the Clos Lucé castle. You will be able to discover the world of the famous Leonardo da Vinci.

Then you will take the road towards Chambord. As soon as you approach the castle, you will be amazed by the majesty of the building that rises before you. Its impressive architecture makes it the largest of the Loire castles. You will then quickly enter the interior thanks to a priority access. Our guide will lead you through some of the castle’s rooms and you will take the famous “double revolution staircase” to reach the large panoramic terrace. You will enjoy a superb view of the park while listening to the comments given by our guide on the history of the castle, built under the reign of François I with the participation of Leonardo da Vinci during the 16th century.
The bus will leave Chambord at 6:00 pm for an expected arrival at our agency in Paris around 8:30 pm.
