Resting on the Loire River, Tours is an easy-going city to slowly be explored.
Sometimes referred to as a mini-Paris, Tours flickers between feeling like a grand city and an intimate, rustic town. Its pedestrianised streets brim with street markets while its intricate medieval cathedral and rich museums rival any found in France’s biggest cities. It is Tours’ scenic setting though, that makes the city so captivating.
Wander to the outskirts of the city and you'll be instantly greeted by miles of vineyards, beautiful chateaux and gardens that resemble works of art. A road trip through the Loire Valley, following the wild river, is an experience filled with French delights and marvelous scenery.
Sights to see
Historic, lively and a gourmet's paradise, Tours is a thriving French city with plenty of treats for the visitor. Whether you are looking to sample the famous French cuisine, or visit one of the city's many markets, Tours offers something for everyone.
