Attractions of Tours city

Prieure Saint Cosme Tours

If you are traveling through the Loire Valley by public transport, the Tours city will be the best choice for accommodation. It is a very pretty city in itself. There are enough hotels in it. Tours is also located in the very center of a large group of castles – getting to any of them will not be difficult:

  • upstream of the Loire – castles Chambord, Blois, Chaumont, Cheverny, Ambois;
  • downstream – Langeais, d’Usse, Saumur, Angais, Brissac, Montsoreau, Fontevraud;
  • on the river Cher, also passing through Tours, – Chenonceau, Loches, Villandry и Azay-le-Rideau;
  • on the river Indres – Chinon

They are not all that far from the Tours and from each other. But combining several places in one day is not so easy if you are without a car, due to the unconvenient transport system in the region.
