Step by Step

France is home to some of the most impressive Renaissance castles, which you can visit on this 1-day tour from Paris. Throughout the tour you will be accompanied by a tour guide who will explain everything about the 3 castles you will visit on the tour: Chenonceau, Chambord and Amboise.

However, it's not all about the castles, as you'll also visit the tomb of Leonardo da Vinci and enjoy 3 traditional wine tastings in the area. In particular, you will visit the area around the Loire River, which is about 200 km from Paris, and the tour also includes all journeys in an air-conditioned vehicle.

The castles you will visit are Chenonceau, Chambord and Amboise, all in Renaissance style.

There is something special about each of these castles. Starting with the Château de Chambord, which is the largest castle in the Loire Valley. Its exterior design leaves all visitors speechless with its immense size. You will also have free time to explore the castle on your own once the guide has finished. On the other hand, Chenonceau Castle is known as the 'Ladies Chateau'. This nickname is due to the fact that it was built by powerful women, whose contributions can be seen in the interior decorations. Finally, there is the Château d'Amboise, one of the oldest castles in France.

However, the interesting visits do not end here, as you will also be able to take a guided tour and visit the tomb of Leonardo da Vinci. During the last 3 years of his life, this genius served the French king and lived in this region, contributing his great wisdom to several of the Loire châteaux.

    Some castles on their own do not offer information in English, so it is important to hire a guide like this one to tell you the most relevant facts.
