Christmas Tour(s)ing...

Lack of festive cheer.

We visited Tours, here in the Loire Valley, on Friday to check out their Marché de Noël. We took the bus from Le Grand Pressigny 3.40 euro return, great value, although currently they are offering a 1.00 euro deal on Saturdays in December to promote this - even better. There were not many visitors nor a great deal of Christmas cheer about - the dreich day did not help. In spite of this we had a good day out with the usual lunch (at the 'Chien Jaune') and coffee stops.

It did get slightly better towards the end of the day as night fell and the lights came on to provide a small degree of festive cheer.

  1. This is interesting - we are thinking about going to the area before Christmas this year and hoped to see a Christmas market. Will aim to go later in the day!! Polly
