In the morning, guided tour of the castle of Blois, former 13th century fortress.

Your tour guide will take you through the Renaissance wing: guards room, queen Catherine de Medici's private apartments, king Henry III's private apartments, where took part the assassination of the duke de guise, one of the most tragic events in the French history.

The afternoon starts with a visit of the castle of Cheverny. Privately owned and built in the 17th century, the chateau de Cheverny is located in an estate that has been owned by the same family since the 13th century. It is famous for its collection of furniture and tapestries making it the homiest castle in the Loire Valley. You will also be impressed by the amazing pack of 80 hunting dogs, visible every day.

Probably the most spectacular castle in the Loire Valley, with its 426 rooms, 282 fireplaces, 77 staircases, it was built in 1519 by king Francis I as a hunting lodge. It is situated in a huge walled 10000 acre large forest, making it the size of Paris. Your tour guide will take you through the king's apartments, the terraces and will show and climb the amazing double helix staircase, possibly attributed to Leoanardo Da Vinci.
