Tours, the capital of Touraine, enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the prestigious region of the Loire châteaux. Crossed by two rivers, this charming Gallo-Roman town maintains its status as a timeless “Garden of France.”

On foot, by train or bicycle, discover the famous “Old Tours” district or stroll through the city’s historic gardens. On the terrace of a café, in medieval alleys or through its markets, you’ll taste the “sweetness of Tours.” Traditional departure site for tours to major cultural attractions in the Loire Valley, Tours is also the home of the “live well and eat well” ideal, so dear to Rabelais. As a city of art and history, Tours has benefited from an active policy of restoring its old quarters during the 60s, allowing it to keep the Place Plumereau, one of the largest restored areas in Europe.
