    What to Expect
    Your Loire Valley day trip starts with hotel pickup in Paris for the drive southwest into ‘château country.’ With your guide, start your castles tour at Château d’Amboise, a preferred royal residence during the Renaissance. King Francis I once welcomed Leonardo da Vinci at this castle, where da Vinci is buried in the Chapel of St Hubert.

    Next, enjoy lunch with drinks, and then head to Château de Chenonceau, one of the most-visited Loire Valley castles for its location straddling the River Cher. Finally, visit Château de Chambord, one of the area’s largest and most impressive castles with extensive grounds.

    Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Paris for hotel drop-off.
