Loire Valley Castles Day Trip

  • English
  • 12.5 hours

Visit three of the Loire Valley’s most-famous castles: Château de Chambord, Château de Cheverny and Château de Chambord and experience how life was like during the Renaissance period.

Itinerary

Depart from central Paris at 7:15am on a luxury-air conditioned coach and in a little over two hours you will arive at the Château de Chambord. 

The excursion includes a tour of two of the most famous Renaissance Châteaux in the Loire Valley:

  • Château de Chambord: Chambord is one of the largest castles in the region and one of the most-visited due to its French Renaissance design. It was constructed for King Francis I of France in 1519. Initially, it was to be one of his hunting grounds. In 1981, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Château de Chenonceau: Chenonceau is known as the “The Ladies’ Castle. It was established in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, remodeled by Diana de Poitiers and by Catherine de Medici and saved from the French Revolution by Madame Dupin. Throughout the centuries, women have preserved it from any conflict, making it a haven of peace.

After visiting the last palace, you’ll return on the coach and arrive in central Paris at 8pm. On Saturdays, you’ll arrive a little later.

Tour with an audio guide

You can choose to do this day trip with an audio guide with pre-recorded commentary in English. In this case, you’ll discover the castles at your own pace. All tours with audio guide take as long as the guided tours and follow the same route.

Important information

  • Saturdays from 1 April to 31 October: You will visit Château d'Amboise instead of Château de Chenonceau. This palace houses Leonardo da Vinci’s tomb, who spent the last three years of his life in a neighboring Château.
