Believe it or not, the Château de Chambord, which features 440 rooms, 282 fireplaces, and 84 staircases, was used as a hunting lodge, and only welcomed the king of France for 72 nights! A very surprising fact when standing in front of such a beautiful castle.
Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and let them lead you inside the Château de Chambord, one of the major highlights of the Loire Valley. With interesting stories about the castle, its architecture and about the person who ordered its construction, King Francis I, your guide will keep your family engaged and entertained throughout the whole 2-hour tour, which is a unique way to teach your kids about Renaissance art.
Among the highlights of the castle, you will discover the famous double helix staircase (designed by Leonardo Da Vinci), the grand fireplaces, the beautiful terraces and much more. You will even hear how the Mona Lisa ended up hidden here during World War II!
