Garden of France
Famous for its original medieval district, Tours is famous for its cafes that serve regional wines and interesting architectural bridges crossing the river Loire. This surprisingly modern-looking town is the capital of the Indre-et-Loire department in the Centre-Val de Loire region. You can rent bicycles from several local businesses allowing you to cycle a portion of the popular 800 km (490 mi) paved bicycle trail called Loire à Vélo that passes through this community along the river.
A stroll or cycle through Vieux Tours, or old town, is a feast for your eyes filled with colorful, old half-timbered houses topped in blue slate (Ardoise) roofs of the unique style of northern France. The city is a major transportation hub for one of the main TGV rail lines and is home to the Tours Loire Valley Airport. When you get hungry and thirsty, head to Place Plumereau, a square with busy pubs and restaurants whose open-air tables fill the square with delectable aromas of regional fare. Tours is in Indre-et-Loire. Put Tours at the heart of your travel plans by using our France trip planner .
