Amboise, in the Touraine region, where living is an art!
In the world-famous Loire Valley and its chateaux, Amboise is a little city counting around 12.000 inhabitants. Renowned to house an amazing castle, and the last mansion of Leonard de Vinci, you will like the hilly landscape covered with vineyards.
Amboise is a perfect starting point to discover medieval and renaissance architecture of the Loire Valley.
In the city are 25 historic monuments such as the Clock tower, the castle or the "Clos Lucé" mansion. Visiting the castle you will learn more about the history of France. From Louis the XIth to Louis Philippe, you will go through more than 500 years! Admire the architecture and the precious pieces of furniture, wow discovering the flamboyant gothic chapel with its lace of sculptures, and engage in private prayer Leonard de Vinci supposed to be buried here.
Head the "Clos-lucé", house of the brilliant painter, and discover one of his inventions in the park surrounding the building.

After driving through the Loire Valley for a week we dropped our rental in Amboise and took the train to Paris. As a tourist the station was easy to get to and made the trip into Paris a breeze. We bought the tickets on line and the whole process could not have been easier
