Perched on the left bank of the Loire, the lovely town of Amboise with its old houses and narrow winding streets is redolent of the memory of illustrious characters. The château that dominates the town and the river has played host to Louis XI, Charles VIII and François I. Showing the influence of the Italian Renaissance, this fine building is one of the most sumptuous royal residences of the Loire Valley. Nearby is the Château du Clos-Lucé, where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last years of his life.
