What to expect

A place of residence for French kings from the 15th to the 19th centuries, its destiny is inextricably linked to the history of France. Numerous literary figures and artists were invited here, like Leonardo da Vinci whose tomb is preserved at the château.

This royal château is thus the expression of French-style luxury. From its balconies, its roofs and its terraced gardens, visitors can take in the Loire landscape and delight in what the kings enjoyed.

Enjoy the 'Renaissance' of the Royal Château of Amboise with the Histopad, a new tablet-based visitor experience, which offers visitors the chance to really immerse themselves in history. Move through long-disappeared buildings; witness the evolution of the royal lodge over time and discover works of art - now found in museums around the world - in their original location. Finally, cross paths with the sovereigns as well as the more humble characters who made history.
