Sightseeing Tours 1 The Cathedral

This is arguably the city's symbol, as it towers over the surrounding area. Built between the 1100s and the 1500s in the Gothic style, it has impressive stained-glass windows and should not be missed.

2 French cuisine

The French cuisine is considered among the most sophisticated and most famous in the world. The region around Tours is famous for its wines, such as the Cabernet Franc and the Chenin Blanc, as well as goat cheeses, game animals - boars, deer, quails - and freshwater fish, such as salmon.

This part of the city is perhaps the most picturesque and traditionally French, with many buildings in the traditional Medieval French style. The most important part of this area is the Place Plumereau, its central square. Many organised walks are organised to discover and make the most of the Old City.

4 The castle and other sights

You can visit the city's castle, built almost 1,000 years ago and now home to art exhibitions with works by famous painters. Other points of interest in the city include the flower market and the Fine Arts Museum.

Tours is close to some beautiful French cities, which are well connected, such as Angers, Le Mans, Orleans and Nantes.

Required travel documents for France

If you are planning to travel to France, it would be useful to keep in mind some information to make the most of your trip. In terms of the difference in time zone, France is one hour ahead of the UK, so the vast majority of passengers will easily adapt to the local time zone. Regarding ID entry requirements, France and the UK are both members of the European Union, so their citizens are not required to get a tourist visa to travel to the other country. A valid (possibly biometric) passport or an ID card issued by a member state of the EEA will be sufficient to pass border checks.
Tours is a small city located in the centre of France, and capital of the Indre-et-Loire region. Known worldwide for its wines, this city has an impressive cultural and historical heritage, visible in its many landmarks. Additionally, when you visit the city, don't miss out the region's great cuisine.
