The capital of France under King Louis XI, Tours is now the main city of the Loire Valley and the jewel of "La Belle Touraine" as celebrated by Alfred de Vigny. The city is perfect for a stroll through historic districts, riddled with picturesque car-free streets which run from the cathedral to Place Plumereau, passing fine Renaissance edifices and the gardens of St Cosme Priory, so dear to the poet Ronsard. Don't miss the new Porte de Loire district, home to the Olivier Debré Contemporary Centre (2017)
