    Tours Car HireTours is a beautiful French city located on the River Loir in the Centre-Val de Loire region. The city is made up of modern architecture, 12th century cathedrals and Roman ruins. The Cathédrale St. Gatien is an iconic triple-naved church which flaunts stained glass from the 13th century and the tomb of the sons of King Charles VIII and Ann de Bretagne.

You can drive through or stroll around on foot to explore the narrow streets and alleyways.

You can unwind in the city centre that is lined with cafes and try the local speciality: Macarons de Montmorillon.
