[Translate to Anglais:]

After you’ve enjoyed the delights of the great outdoors, it’s time to explore some of Tours’ heritage treasures. The visit starts at the foot of Saint-Gatien cathedral, the symbol of the city. Take time to really appreciate the building’s Gothic architecture before then heading to the town hall, a building with beautiful façades, gardens and fountains - the ideal place for a relaxing break. Shopping enthusiasts and history buffs will both enjoy Rue Nationale, an impressively-sized, main thoroughfare which was partially destroyed during the war, and which offers a lovely view of the Loire. Then surrender to the Tours tradition and take a seat on the terraces in the famous place Plumereau...


Tours, city of gastronomy

[Translate to Anglais:]

Did you know? Tours is a member of a very elite club: it is one of the international cities of gastronomy. It won’t take you long to realize that the city well deserves such an accolade... In the market, try some Sainte-Maure de Touraine, a delicate goat’s cheese with a distinctive flavour. You can also opt for some freshwater fish, caught in the Loire, between Saumur and Tours: bream, mullet, catfish, shad or chub. Unless you prefer to try some rillettes de Tours (salted, shredded pork) to enjoy with a nice slice of bread. Or why not treat yourself to some “fouée tourangelle,” bread rolls filled with cheese or rillettes.
