On this square lined with timber-framed houses, named “Best place for drinks” by Lonely Planet, you can soak up the buzzing atmosphere of Tours and its way of life.
Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Tour Charlemagne and the Basilica of Saint Martin on this paved pedestrian square dotted with olive trees. Savour the calm and the dolce vita as you sip a glass of Corsican wine and enjoy a charctuerie or cheese board at A Torra, or a cocktail at Le Tournesol!
“The Monster” by Xavier Veilhan will watch over you as you order the drink of your choice on this newly refurbished pedestrian square at the heart of Vieux-Tours. You can also enjoy the many restaurants in the area, or take a detour to the outdoor food market nearby, nicknamed “le ventre de Tours” (the belly of Tours).
Many bars and restaurants crowd this Parisian-style square, home to the Hôtel de Ville - built in the early 20th century by Victor Laloux - and the neo-classical Palais de Justice. Enjoy a glass at the champagne bar in the Brasserie de l’Univers under the glass dome, or a signature drink at Blend & Shaker, a New York-style bar.
These two magnificent gardens in Tours are the perfect place for a rest or a bite to eat in a green oasis. At the parc des Prébendes, check out El Cafecito and try a coffee from Latin America, roasted in Tours. In the French-style gardens of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Le Kiosk welcomes you to its pop-up restaurant for a glass of Loire wine or candlelit dinner during the summer.
