About the place:
Tours is one of the most popular destinations for travelers looking to explore the French countryside. The town is a gorgeous old world gem with plenty to see and do. It was founded in the late Iron Age by a Celtic tribe known as the Turones, who gave it the name “Turodum”. Some people believe that Tours is a combination of two words: turn and oaks. This may have referred to an old proverb “There are no fine trees near Tournehem” or else be some sort of archaeological reference to ancient times when castles were built out of oak wood.
Tourism began here at least as early as Roman times with its famous monument (the church Saint-Martin) being erected on one such trade route between eastern France and Western Europe.
You may have heard about French cuisine, but what is Tours famous for? The town is known as a place where you can find many fine wines and perfect pastries. If we could only choose one thing to recommend from this region, it would be wine.
Things to do in Tours:
One of the most popular places you can visit is Chateau de Tours. The castle was built in the medieval times and located on top of a hill that overlooks all of town. It’s possible to take a tour around this famous landmark or even go up into one of its towers for a great view from above.
Another site worth seeing when in Tours is La Loire River which runs through the city. A local favorite spot along here is called Les Jardins du Carrousel Gardens where people can find plenty of amusement park rides as well as eating food outdoors at one of the restaurants. For those visitors who enjoy cycling there are also several bike paths running nearby Loire river with the option to stop off at any number of the local bars or cafes along the way.
Next thing you should visit is The Basilica of Saint Martin is a Romanesque church in Tours France. It was built between 1170 and 1250, on the site of an earlier basilica where St. Martin himself had been buried. This building has several interesting features, including its three monumental towers that are seemingly defying gravity by leaning into each other at odd angles to form what amounts to a single bell tower.
