Just a quick, one hour train ride from Paris lays the charming village of Chartres. A historical treasure, and an original UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, your Chartres tour will exlore France's oldest cathedral and its historic old town.

Your tour of Chartres is an exploration of it storied Celtic and Roman history, beginning with the granite stonewalls that surround the city through to France’s largest cathedral that was built during the 12th century.

Our guided tour of Chartres uncovers what makes the legendary cathedral rare and introduces our guests to 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 showcase the historical past of the town, when it was a village of mills. It is at one of the mills, which charmingly overlooks the old town, where you will have the wonderful opportunity to have a local lunch and refreshments before you return to Paris.
