Your home base for touring Loire valley chateaux Would you like to learn the French language ? It's been said that Tours, in the chateaux-rich Loire Valley, is where the purest form is spoken. As if the language weren't beautiful enough, those in Tours apparently have that certain je nais se quoi when it comes to their linguistic prowess. Arriving into Tours is as a lovely as the gardens at Chenonceau (more on that in a bit.) Take the one-hour TGV ride from Paris to the St Pierre des Corps train station just outside of the city. A shuttle will connect you to downtown Tours. At 78 rue Barnard Palissy, right outside the station, you'll find a tourist office where you can gather information on the best of the city and beyond.
