What To Expect
Travel through the rolling hills of the Loire Valley, a UNESCO-listed wine region in central France. Your guide drives you to each castle, which you explore on your own without being tethered to the rest of your group.
Kick off your tour at the largest castle in the Loire Valley, the UNESCO-listed Château de Chambord. Learn about its astounding Renaissance architecture—legend has it that Leonardo da Vinci contributed to the design of its double-helix staircase.
Continue to the Château d’Amboise, which began as a defensive castle in the 11th century for its strategic position overlooking the Loire River before being converted in the 15th century to a residence for royals. Step inside the Chapel of St. Hubert, where the remains of Leonardo da Vinci are buried.
Then, enjoy free time in the village at the foot of the Castle to wander and enjoy your lunch break after a wine tasting.
Once revitalized, head to Château de Chenonceau, a 16-century castle spanning the Cher River, and one of the most popular châteaux in France for its elaborate interior and exterior. Your full-day tour ends with return transport to the original departure point in Paris.
