Description

The castle, registered as a World Heritage site by Unesco offer one of the most remarkable panoramas of the Loire Valley with its landscaped gardens and wonders on this emblematic monument where you will visit the Royal House, the Chapel (Leonardo da Vinci's tomb) and the gardens.

This medieval fortress made way for a royal residence during the reigns of King Charles VIII and François I (late 15th - early 16th century). The Court and numerous men and women of letters and European artists stayed at Amboise on the sovereigns' invitation, as did Leonardo da Vinci, for example, whose tomb is placed today in the chateau's chapel.

This renowned site for French history has an exceptional collection of Gothic and Renaissance furniture, a reference of the artistic finery in the first French Renaissance. After a visit of the Royal apartments and the imposing horsemen's tower, the visit is prolonged by a stroll in the magnificent panoramic gardens overlooking the Loire River.
