    Day 1 – Getting a taste for the castles

    You will start your day off by taking a train at around 7am from Paris to the Tours central train station. Your guide will pick you up at the nearby, designated meeting location. Then you will be off in the mini-van to visit the beautiful chateaux of the Loire Valley.

    The first castle up is the Chateau of Azay-Le-Rideau. This castle was built during the reign of Francis I during the 16th century. Here you will find an exemplary illustration of early French renaissance architecture. Examine also the collection of Flemish and French tapestries which furnish the chateau’s apartments.

    Next up you will visit the magnificent Gardens of Villandry. These gardens frame the Chateau of Villandry. These gardens were known for their beauty during the Renaissance. They are constructed on three different levels: the water garden with lime trees, a decorative flower garden, and the kitchen garden.

    Then you will have lunch in a nice, regional restaurant in Tours.

    During the afternoon you will depart for the Chateau of Chenonceau. This castle was built during the 16th century. It was modified by Diane de Poitiers and later by Catherine de Medici. This castle has inspired artists from the Renaissance on. Don’t forget to take a stroll through the French gardens.

    The last castle is the Chateau of Chambord. Francois I built this castle in 1519. With 440 rooms this castle is very expansive and yet it was built like a fortress with Gothic roofs, turrets, and strong stone façades.

    You will be dropped off at your hotel in the medieval city of Amboise for the night.

    Day 2 – Exploring Amboise & Clos Lucé

    In the morning you will visit the medieval city of Amboise. Wander through the streets and get a feel for the history of this city. On the weekend, there are markets you can also visit.

    You will then visit the castle of Amboise, home of Henri the II and Catherine de Medicis. It is also the place where Leonardo Da Vinci is buried.

    As an add-on option you can also visit the Clos Lucé Castle if you would like. (This option is instead of taking time to relax during meal or wandering in the city). Clos Lucé was the home of Leonardo Da Vinci from 1516 to 1519, the last years of his life.

    Visit the rooms of the chateau and imagine Leonardo living and working there. Also see his garden where nature inspired him and see models of his inventions.

    In the evening you will take a train back from Amboise to Paris.
