Place is full of history and the audio tour is wonderful. The town itself is quite and pleasant. Recommend a carriage tour, it is short and nice. Starts at the palace.

The castle of Blois is very interesting architecture wise. It is well preserved. There is quite a few things to see inside. It is a shame that one of the building (where the café is) cannot be visited (only from the ground floor) as its ceiling is very impressive and makes us wanna see more. Staff were nice and efficient too. Its unique staircase is absolutely beautiful and worth seeing.
Beautiful Chateau with plenty of notable figures and their influences present here. The architecture varies from wing to wing, and the outside revolving staircase is a highlight. The exhibitions within felt very well-preserved and natural. Would definitely recommend stopping by this Chateau on a trip through the Loire valley.
This visit was amazing. The chateau was beautifully decorated for Christmas and a joy to wander in. The art work and decorations were fabulous. We were able to get the self guided audio tour and it was the right thing. There is a lot of art, so plan to spend time to look around.
Very interactive visit will the free tablet. And the staircase is fascinating. Would definitely come back for the sound and light show someday.
One of my favourites of the Loire Chateaux, the four sides are built in different styles. There are some interesting interiors to see and some interesting info about the wars of religion in France, some key events of which took place here
