Rick Steves' Europe
Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | Along the Loire River Valley, the beautiful French countryside is studded with evocative châteaux.
Home-basing in Amboise, we visit four unique castles: elegant Chenonceau, massive Chambord, stately Cheverny, and fragrant Villandry.
Along the way, we tour Leonardo da Vinci’s home, feed hunting dogs, enjoy the local cuisine, and savor a princely garden.
