Capital of France under Louis XI, Tours is now the main city in the Loire Valley, the jewel in the crown of "La Belle Touraine" celebrated by Alfred de Vigny. The city is perfect for a relaxing stroll with historic quarters cross-crossed by charming pedestrianised streets which extend from the cathedral to Place Plumereau, passing fine Renaissance residences and the gardens of St Cosme Priory, much loved by the poet Ronsard.
