Publisher Comments:

You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in the Loire Valley.

Rick Steves covers the essentials of the Loire Valley, including Amboise and Chinon. Visit grandiose chand#226;teaus, such as Chenonceau, Blois, and Chand#226;teau dand#8217;Azay-le-Rideau. Tour the Leonardo da Vinci park and go wine-tasting in Vouvray. Youand#8217;ll get Rickand#8217;s firsthand advice on the best sights, eating, sleeping, and nightlife, and the maps and self-guided tours will ensure you make the most of your experience. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves Snapshot guide is a tour guide in your pocket.

Rick Stevesand#8217; Snapshot guides consist of excerpted chapters from Rick Stevesand#8217; European country guidebooks. Snapshot guides are a great choice for travelers visiting a specific city or region, rather than multiple European destinations. These slim guides offer all of Rickand#8217;s up-to-date advice on what sights are worth your time and money. They include good-value hotel and restaurant recommendations, with no introductory information (such as overall trip planning, when to go, and travel practicalities).

With the help of his hardworking staff of 70 at Europe Through the Back Doorand#151;in Edmonds, Washington, just north of Seattleand#151;Rick's mission is to make European travel fun, affordable, and culturally broadening for Americans.
