Depart from a central Parisian location in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, and head into the heart of the verdant Loire Valley. Arrive at the turreted Chambord Castle, an impressive structure that boasts the title of the largest Loire chateaux, and disembark to discover the richly decorated rooms within. Admire the intricate spiral staircase that snakes up to the spires of the rooftop terrace, and hear how Leonardo Da Vinci is reputed to have designed the interior.
Next, travel to Chenonceau Castle to admire its picturesque riverside position, and hear of the prominent women that have lived there throughout history.
Enjoy as well a wine tasting!
