Vinci in Tours

International Conference Centre
just a short walk from our hotel

We’re located 3 minutes from the Vinci centre, making us the ideal place to stay for getting the most out of Tours’ International Conference Centre and its different functions.

With three auditoriums seating between 350 and 2000, numerous exhibition and eating facilities, the Vinci centre hosts a variety of events including concerts, theatrical performances, operas, musicals and even festivals like the Games Tours Festival. With its various meeting rooms, it also hosts numerous professional events including conferences, AGMs, research events and meetings. Conceived by renowned architect Jean Nouvel, the Vinci centre was built in 1994 and its building has blended perfectly into the urban landscape of Tours. Between the prefecture gardens and the station, its rounded roof, noticeable even in construction, rises up like a great ship. Beneath this magnificent canopy, let yourself be enticed in as you look through the building's glass façade.

Tourism in Tours

A member of the “Cités de la Gastronomie” network, listed as a protected “City of Art and History” and the gateway to the Loire Valley with its regal fairytale castles, Tours is a place to enjoy a gentle way of life surrounded by outstanding cultural heritage.  

Château de Tours

On the shady banks of the Loire, the Château de Tours features remnants from across its history. What remains of the original fortress built in the 13th century is the Tour de Guise, a regal turret from which the castle’s residents could attack invaders.

Botanical garden

Between the Loire and Cher, the botanic garden is a lovely place to visit. On the south side, visit the arboretum where its range of beautiful, fragrant trees have made it an outstanding garden. There is also a petting zoo accessible to the public.

Musée des beaux-arts

In the former archbishop's palace located between the city’s château and station and 5 minutes on foot from the hotel, the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Fine Arts Museum) has an impressive collection of paintings. Its traditional French garden provides a lovely view of the cathedral.

Saint Gatien Cathedral

From its 13th century choir area to its façade of the 15th and 16th centuries, the city’s cathedral illustrates the evolution of Gothic architecture, but its crowning glory are its two Renaissance-era towers.

Place Plumereau

A pedestrian zone, this square is surrounded by beautiful 15th century timber-framed houses that alternate with stone buildings. On sunny days, take a seat at one of the café and restaurant terraces to watch the world go by.

Old Tours

Restored in the 1970s, Old Tours, centred around Place Plumereau, is an unmissable destination just a stone’s throw from the banks of the Loire. Wander down its ever-lively, traditional winding streets with its bustling shops.
