Tours : Michelin's recommendations
Not all the masterpieces remain in the castles of the Loire Valley; many can also be seen in the Compagnonnage Museum in Tours. In addition, the capital of the region immortalised as “La Belle Touraine” by Alfred de Vigny retains three perfectly preserved historic quarters. Stroll along its pedestrianised streets from the cathedral to Place Plumereau, passing fine Renaissance residences and the gardens of St Côme Priory.
