Nestling on the left bank of the Loire, Amboise has kept traces of its royal past.
In summer the town's majestic Château with its terraces overlooking the Loire Valley is cleverly illuminated. During the wine fair in Easter, the aromas of various grape varieties float through the amazing tunnel of the Château, ideal for this kind of event.
Amboise and its shopping streets have always charmed visitors.
This town of character played host to Leonardo da Vinci, invited by François I to Château du Clos Lucé. Even today the genius of the famous inventor haunts this Château, where around 40 of his fabulous machines are displayed.
