Capital of the French Renaissance, Amboise is at the confluence of natural beauties and historical splendors.
Traveling to Amboise is a journey into UNESCO World Heritage and the French Art de Vivre. Situated in a scenic-beyond-words location between the Loire River and the deep forest, Amboise is the perfect location to explore the Loire Valley. A royal city that breathes elegance and grandeur, Amboise welcomes visitors by dazzling them with the beauty of its white stone reflecting on the Loire River. Probably the most impressive of all of Amboise's attractions, the Château d'Amboise is an architectural gem that many French kings called home between the 15th and 19th centuries. Built on a dramatic rock overlooking the Loire River, the castle received many honorable guests throughout the centuries, among whom Leonardo da Vinci stands out.
