Loire Valley Castles Day Trip

At 7 am, we will pick you up at your hotel in Nantes and head to the castles within the Loire region, one of the most visited areas in France! During the 2 hour journey, an English-speaking guide will reveal the history of these majestic buildings.

The first stop will be at Chenonceau, the "Château des Dames". Catherine de Medici and other illustrious women of the 16th century were involved in the decoration of this monument, which is notable for its characteristic arches over the Cher River. During the visit, you'll be able to appreciate both the luxurious furnishings of the rooms and the castle's beautiful gardens.

The tour will continue towards Amboise. In this beautiful town situated on the banks of the Loire River, we'll visit a local restaurant to allow you to recharge your batteries. You can choose a starter and a main course, or a main course and a dessert. Both options will include drinks and coffee.

After lunch, we'll go to the famous royal castle of Amboise. In this old palatial residence, you can see Leonardo da Vinci's tomb. The Florentine genius spent his last years of life in Amboise, in the service of King Francis I. This monarch was one of the main driving forces behind the French Renaissance which, as you'll see, is very much present in the Amboise castle.

Finally, we'll return to Nantes, arriving at 7:30 pm.

Pick up 

The tour includes pick-up from hotels in the centre of Nantes. If you're staying in other more remote areas, we'll pick you up at the time indicated at the Bacchus de Nantes Bus Station, located in avenue Allée de la Maison Rouge.
