This beautiful castle built on the River Cher was home to five different ladies between 1499-1836; Diane De Poitiers, Catherine de Medici, Louise of Lorraine, Louise Dupin and Marguerite Pelouze.

I love Tours so much. The town is the most perfect and charming place I have ever been! I really don't ever want to leave (sorry mom and dad). It's crazy to think that we have already been here for two weeks, and is so sad to think that there is less than one week left! Today we went to see the château at Amboise.
