We toured the city when we arrived via the L’Open Tour bus, which allows you to hop on or off at any point on the route. It gave us a nice overview of what areas/sights we should visit at length for the remainder of the week.
Our experience was phenomenal, it didn’t take long to understand why and how someone can hopelessly in love with this city.
I will admit that it’s almost ideal for a couple…the romance was palpable. We decided to maximize our stay by doing a daytrip in the Loire Valley where romantic castles are all the rage. We were thrilled to see the summer home of Leonardo da Vinci too.
