Be amazed by the majestic castles of Loire Valley!
For this extended day trip, we drive for 2 to 3 hours to Loire Valley. We can stop to grab some coffee or snacks. We'll visit the smallest castle of the three which is Château d'Amboise. You'll be fascinated with the 15th-century furniture collection and household items which are displayed in the area. We'll also visit the grave of Leonardo da Vinci located in a small chapel in the gardens.
For lunch, I can recommend a gastronomic restaurant nearby. Then we'll proceed with a 2nd and larges castle in this Loire Valley day trip. Be stunned with a picture-perfect French Renaissance architecture including a spiral staircase which is designed by Leonardo Da Vinci himself.
The third castle is the lavish and spectacular on Chenonceau Castle on River Cher. It is the most beautiful caste and 2nd most visited place in France. You'll learn its history and why its know as the Ladies' Château.
I can also propose le Clos Lucé or Blois as an option.

We spent a great day with Karim touring three castles. His knowledge of history and art is very extensive and he is very passionate about it. Our day started at 7 am and ended at 7:30 pm, the long day was made pleasant by Karim's ability to inform and make the subject interesting. I would highly recommend him as a guide. Jim and Mary
