The Tourist Office of Tours Val de Loire offers a guided tour of the City of Tours with an officially approved guide. A walking tour in the centre of the protected area of Tours.

The City of Tours was founded in the first century on the left bank of the Loire River.
In the Middle Ages, two distinct areas developed: The City around the unsinkable mound of the cathedral area and the area of Châteauneuf, also known as the old city, around a huge collegiate dedicated to Saint Martin.
Royal Capital from 1440 to 1520, Tours saw at the end of the Middle-Ages and at the beginning of the Renaissance, the rebuilding of practically all its urban houses. At that time of flourishing growth, the City inherited from a homogenous block of former houses and religious buildings which will be discovered during this tour.

Meeting point: In front of the Tourist Office of Tours Val de Loire, 78-82 Rue Bernard Palissy, Tours.
