The Paris & Tours WayChemin de Paris et de Tours in French or Via Turonensis in Latin, has been the Camino de Santiago route followed traditionally by pilgrims coming from the North of France and Europe. Paris, the City of Lights, is the starting point for this route. Tour St Jacques, in Rue de Rivoli, has seen pilgrims embark on their Camino de Santiago journey from this very spot for many centuries.

Followed by devoted Medieval pilgrims, the Paris & Tours Way is dotted with wonderful historic towns and sanctuaries of great importance, such as the Basilica of Saint Martin in the splendid city of Tours.

Admiring majestic castles in the Loire Valley, walking across the fine vineyards of Bordeaux, exploring charming Medieval villages and, of course, treating yourself to authentic French cuisine (with a glass of Bordeaux wine!) along the way are some of the things that will make this Paris & Tours Way special.

Trip highlights

  • Start your journey at Tour St Jacques, like a medieval pilgrim
  • Admire the story of Joan of Arc in stained glass at Orléans Cathedral
  • Discover the delicious treats of an authentic French 'pâtisserie'
  • Be King or Queen of the castle at magnificent Château d'Amboise
