It was a little difficult getting out of Tours due to some construction on the bridge that Google Maps wanted us to use to cross over the Loire. But once we got past that, it was pretty smooth sailing on a mix of asphalt farm roads and two lane highways. We made it to Amboise around 11:30 a.m., where we toured the Leonardo de Vinci museum, the last place that he lived and worked in before he died. Here are some photos of the museum.
His workshop and laboratory were the most interesting part of the museum.
After touring the museum we went back down to Amboise and met up with Beth, and had lunch right outside the Chateau de Amboise. Here are some photos we took at lunch.
Beth then visited the Chateau de Amboise while Mark, Tim and I biked about two more hours to Blois.
Tomorrow we ride to Orleans after first stopping for a visit at Chateau de Chambord.
