Tours: French lifestyle at its best


A town of art and history with medieval streets and squares, half-timbered houses, paved narrow streets, Tours is brimming over with charm.

Buzzing with cultural activities - museums, monuments, parks and gardens, theatre - Tours symbolises all that is good about French lifestyle. Food-lovers and gourmets: you must try rillettes and rillons from Tours, fouaces (buns cooked on a wood stove), goat's cheese from Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine with a glass of Vouvray or Chinon, in a good restaurant or at a market. Stop off at a café terrace or a restaurant on Place Plumereau, a highly convivial square that is always lively.

All year long, the town of Tours gets festive and hosts a great many music and theatre festivals.
