AMBOISE & CLOS LUCE HALF-DAY TOUR
A Private Loire Valley Tour By RiverLoire
Your private English-speaking RiverLoire guide will come and pick you up at either 9:15 am or 2:00 pm to guide you through the town of Amboise, also known as the cradle of the Renaissance. This half day tour is the perfect way to start your stay and a valuable introduction to the discovery of the Loire Valley culture and history.
You will first visit together the Château Royal d’Amboise. Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, this truly royal castle introduced Italian style and taste into the Loire Valley. This emblematic monument and its landscaped gardens offer one of the most remarkable panoramas of the Loire Valley.
Your guide will then walk you to the Clos Lucé, the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci, located 10 minutes away from the Château d’Amboise. It contains an unusual display of artefacts that gives an idea of the many facets of the man’s genius.
Finally we will guide you through the charming little town of Amboise for an exploration of the pedestrian streets. You will be charmed by the narrow streets of this historically rich city with its old half-timbered houses and its many chic boutiques and cafés.
At the end of the half day tour, we will head back to VillaConcorde.
