Your tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Chartres begins when your guide meets you to escort you there personally on the short 1-hour train ride from Paris. When you arrive in charming Chartres, you’ll visit this historical treasure with your guide, and explore the old town and visti France’s largest cathedral.
On your 6-hour tour of Chartres you’ll go back in time to learn about its storied Roman and Celtic history, take in the ancient granite walls that still surround the city, and visit the 12th-century cathedral that is the largest in France.
Your Chartres exploration uncovers what makes the legendary cathedral so rare and shares the sacred religious stories that are depicted throughout the cathedral in the stained glass and stone.
Of course, your tour of Chartres will do much more than simply show you the cathedral. Your guide will also take you through the ancient old town, built into the hill leading to the Eure River and escort you through the historical past of the town, when it was a village of mills. It is at one of those very mills, which charmingly overlooks the old town, where you will have the wonderful opportunity to have a local lunch and refreshments if you choose, before you return to Paris.
