Get out and about early or otherwise late in the afternoon (some Chateau's open until 7pm) less crowds and cooler part of the day.

The castle of Amboise is in excellent shape and is nice to visit. This is where Leonardo da Vinci is buried.

Le36, the restaurant at the Hotel de Choiseul, must be the best in town. We especially recommend the carpaccio de St. Jacques (thinly sliced and marinated scallops), and the demi-pigeon de racan. The Pavlova dessert was also delicious. Fine service and lovely setting too.

Located almost out of the urban area, the hotel is very quiet and peaceful and introduced us to the beauties of the Loire Valley. From there it was easy to drive to visit the spectacular chateaus and splendid wineries. In a country full of beautiful landscapes, the Valley of the Loire easily holds its own.
