    Stop At: Chateau de Chambord, le Chateau, 41250, Chambord France

    Chambord is the star of the Loire châteaux. Through Chambord, François Ier wanted to create a work in the image of his power: he would be flattered to discover the incredible fate of his hunting palace.

    When you find yourself facing the Château de Chambord, the impression is striking: is it a vessel, is it a mirage ... This architectural masterpiece was ordered by the young François Ier who wanted a building sumptuous, symbol of the power of its power. The sovereign had a chivalrous spirit but a heart enamored with art and architecture, so his hunting palace would embody the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

    Stop At: Chateau de Chenonceau, 37150 Chenonceaux France

    The Château de Chenonceau is an exceptional site, thanks to its original design and the richness of its collections

    Property of the Crown, then royal residence, the Château de Chenonceau is an exceptional site, by its original design, the richness of its collections, its furniture and its decoration, but also by its destiny, since it was loved, administered and protected by women, all out of the ordinary and who, for the most part, have made history.

    "Château des Dames" for the history of France, built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, embellished successively by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici, Chenonceau was saved from the rigors of the Revolution by Madame Dupin. This feminine imprint is present everywhere, preserving it from conflicts and wars to make it always a place of peace.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Chateau Royal d'Amboise, Montee de l'Emir Abd El Kader Montée de l'Emir Abd-el-Kader, 37400, Amboise France

    Imagine a palace delicately placed above the Loire, and imagine the gardens suspended between heaven and earth ... No wonder Amboise was one of the favorite sites of the kings of France when they transformed their country during the Renaissance. Charles VIII and Francis I, Leonardo da Vinci (whose tomb is housed in the castle chapel), or the iconic Queen Anne of Brittany are familiar faces of the place. Even today, what a breathtaking view! At 360 °, you will discover landscapes listed as World Heritage of Humanity. A castle open to nature, a haven of peace for birds, Amboise is also a place of innovation where innovation, like the HistoPad, enriches discovery.
