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. When using our France trip itinerary app to make an itinerary online, Tours holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
