Go on a full day Loire Valley tour from Paris, complete with a visit to two of its famous castles: Chambord and Chenonceau.

Home to a wide range of flora and fauna, did you know that the Chateau de Chambord park is as big as inner Paris? The castle, completed by King Louis XIV, is also the largest castle in whole Loire Valley region. See its Leonardo da Vinci-inspired famous double helix staircase and try to spot the more than 300 salamanders carved on the ceilings and walls inside the castle.

Visit the Chenonceau castle next, a place that has once been a military hospital during World War I. Over 2,250 soldiers have been treated in this castle, which are paid tribute to in the Gallery of Domes.

Aside from the Loire Valley castles, find picturesque landscapes, historic landmarks, and quaint villages in the Loire Valley region, which is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Enjoy a comfortable bus ride, wine tasting, lunch at the St. Hubert Hotel Restaurant (from November to March only), and even opt to add a convenient hotel pick-up and drop-off service from Paris.
