The exterior is beautiful - there are viewpoints over the Loire, Renaissance gardens, and stunning carved stonework, especially on the chapel of St. Hubert, where Leonardo is buried. I chose this chateau because of Leonardo’s grave. Paid 3 Euro extra for the tour and it...More

This was my favorite as far as ticking off the boxes for a royal castle. It sits on the Loire, it's high above the town below, and has amazing views. The other chateaux I visited were much more secluded. This felt like a real castle,...More

It’s a bit of a hike from the square up to the entrance of this Chateau, but the effort is worth it. The structure is impressive, overlooking the river and the town. Within the chateau the guards’ room and other functional rooms are sparsely furnished,...More

It's worth spending a few hours exploring this historic chateau, and be sure to walk through the upper level gardens.

A must see if in Amboise with so much history attached. Great views and of course. You need to give a couple of hours at least to have a high level look.

Hello, Deeply sorry but since a few years we are not allowed to get luggage from our visitors and a security agent have to check every bag at the entrance to the castle. Hope we can see you in Amboise!
