Angers - Has a Chateau/Castle well worth a visit, it includes the renown Apocalypse Tapestry, 103 m long illustrating the last book of the Bible written by St John. Culturally, there are museums, a magnificent Cathedral, and guided walks around the Old Town. It has an abundance of restaurants and bars, and for those that like to mix both, the Cointreau Museum.

Saumur - Beautiful town, on the River Loire. Superb Chateau. Home to the world famous Cadre Noir. A tank museum and a mushroom museum. Champigny houses, some set in the limestone caves along the river.
