Known as the ‘garden of France’, this blossoming city is also conveniently close to the Loire Valley with its hundreds of beautiful châteaux set among rolling green pastures and ancient vineyards. Less than an hour from Paris, Tours is a charming medieval city with a long and rich history, with both Balzac and Rabelais having praised this corner of Touraine where the vineyards reign supreme.
At the heart of Tours, the Cathedral of Saint-Gatien is one of the most famous pilgrimages in Europe. Blanche of Castille and Saint Louis contributed to its construction, while Joan of Arc, the Kings of France, and thousands of pilgrims on their way to Saint Iago de Compostela have all visited the cathedral. The Museum of Fine Arts boasts a wide collection including works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Delacroix and Degas, while two smaller museums housed in the cellars and the cloister of Saint-Julien exhibit the history of wine making and the tools used, as well as social rituals and customs.
At the heart of the wine-growing region of the Loire Valley, Tours rolls out the red carpet to nearly one hundred and fifty wine-growers for one weekend in May each year at their VitiLoire event.

Focused on sharing expertise and knowledge, VitiLoire consists of exhibitions, workshops and tasting sessions to learn how to enjoy the wines of the Val de Loire.
