The overnight accommodation was excellent (far better than I expected). ...Bruce M., Australia – See more reviews

Description

Known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language, Loire Valley is also noteworthy for the quality of its architectural heritage.

Our afternoon features a guided visit of the Clos-Luce, Leonardo da Vinci's last dwelling and the gardens of Villandry. Afterward, we pay a visit to the old historic districts of Tours.
