Tours sites to see in one evening

We will be staying one night in Tours (arriving at 5:00PM or 1700 hours) as part of a tour on a Monday in the third week of July. We will be staying at the Mercure Tours Nord 11 Rue de l'Aviation, 37100 Tours, France. We only have one evening to see Tours. Please give me recommendations what sites we should go to in the one night that we will have. It would also be useful to have directions from the hotel and to know if certain sites would be closed after a certain time. Thank you very much for any advise you can give,

All the advice you have received is good, except for one thing: I think your problem is going to one of location - your hotel is in the middle of a retail park outside the city of Tours. The hotel may be able to call you a taxi, but I wouldn't be too sure about that, especially at that time of the evening.

Even if you do manage a taxi, it could take you quite some time to reach the city as the roadworks for the tram are particularly troublesome around that area. The taxi will probably take you right around the outskirts, across the Loire on the Autotoute and back into town that way (that's the way I would do it, although you could end up sitting for 15 minutes in the back of the cab on the motorway exit even so).

it will be an interesting exercise though - do let us know how you get on!

Thank you for your overall advise. We will have to plan accordingly based on where our hotel is located.
