Day 8Tours

This morning you will visit Château de Chambord, constructed on a truly ‘royal’ scale and the largest residence in the Loire region. Work began on the Château at the instigation of the extravagant François I and was not completed until 150 years later. In fact, the scale of the palace was such that the river Closson (a tributary of the Loire) was actually redirected to improve its aspect. Highlights for today’s visitors include the roof terraces, the grand staircase (supposedly designed by Leonardo da Vinci) and the king’s bedchamber.
