GETTING AROUND TOURS ON FOOT
The center of Tours is rather small and lends itself to being easily turned on foot.
Walking is, however, pleasant. Weather permitting.
The bike is a practical solution, and quite common in the Loire. Loire a Velo, is an extraordinary cycling tour to discover this wonderful land. By bike it is possible to move to Tours, the surrounding area and the splendid Loire. You can push yourself where your mind and your body can get to!
