Featured Destinations

Paris

Paris, world capital of art and culture, gathers some of the most famous museums and monuments in the world. Like all the world's great capitals, Paris lives at a fast pace, by day, by night and especially at rush hours. Bear in mind that museums and monuments are often less crowded during the week. Sights that should not be missed include: The Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. Visit any of the many others according to your tastes and interests: the Musee Picasso, Musee Rodin, Musee Carnavalet, Musee Marmottan and the Arab Institute are just a few. Essential Paris monuments are the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe or the Grande Arche de la Defense.

Tours

Though it doesn't boast a major château, Tours is the traditional center for exploring the Loire valley. Devout Christians en route to Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain once stopped here to pay homage at the tomb of St. Martin, the Apostle of Gaul, who was bishop of Tours in the 4th century. With a population of 130,000, Tours is known for its food and wine. Because many of its buildings were bombed in World War II, 20th-century apartment towers have taken the place of châteaux. Because Tours is at the doorstep of some of the most magnificent châteaux in France, it makes a good base from which to explore. Most Loire Valley towns are rather sleepy, but Tours is where the action is, with busy streets and cafes. A quarter of the residents are students, who add a vibrant, active touch.

Blois

Dominating the Loire River, the royal castle of Blois is one of the most prestigious Renaissance monuments in France and a brilliant illustration of the evolution of the French architecture from the Middle ages to the 17th century. About the middle of the 10th century, Blois became the most important town in the region. The first stone castle was built to protect the town dates back to that period. The medieval remains still exist. The best preserved medieval tower is situated on a terrace overlooking the Loire.
