France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Blois, France
The huge château dominates this interesting hillside town on the banks of the Loire, good to use as a base for visits throughout the region.




The Château Royal de Blois dominates the town of Blois, which climbs a steep hillside above the banks of the Loire (map).

Because of its transport connections, its location in the region, its hotels, and of course its own interesting things to see and do, Blois makes a fine base for visits by train, bus, bicycle or car throughout the region. More...

The stone pont Jacques Gabriel bridge crosses the Loire from the city center on the north bank at place de la Résistance to Blois-Sud on the south bank.

Besides the château and Maison de la Magie, a museum of magic and the art of illusion, Blois has numerous historic churches, including the Église de St-Vincent up the hill in the city center behind the chateau, and the huge Cathédrale de St-Louis. More...

The office de tourisme is on the same hilltop as the château. More...
