Train is the best way to travel to and from Tours, France, but there are intercity and local buses, and an airport as well.





The place de la Résistance at the center of Tours, and the south bank of the River Loire, are about 1 km (6/10 mile) to the north of the bus and train stations.


The main train station (Gare de Tours SNCF) in Tours is very near the eurolines bus station, the tourist office (Office de Tourisme), the convention center (Centre International de Congrès de Tours) and several hotels.

From the Gare de Tours SNCF you can take TER regional trains to Amboise and other Loire Valley towns.

Important: TGV trains arrive and depart from a different station, the Gare de St Pierre des Corps, 4 km (2.5 miles) east of the Gare de Tours SNCF. More...
