Orleans

Orléans is a city in north-central France, about 111km southwest of Paris. Explore Orleans' surroundings by going to Caves du Pere Auguste (in Civray-de-Touraine), Chateau de Chenonceau (in Chenonceaux) and Boat Tours & Water Sports (in Montrichard). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Chateau de Chambord, pause for some serene contemplation at Chartres Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Chateau of Azay-le-Rideau, and explore the historical opulence of Chateau Royal d'Amboise.

Cherbourg holds an arsenal of the French Navy.
Get out of town with these interesting Cherbourg-Octeville side-trips: Eglise Saint-Come-et-Saint-Damien d'Angoville-au-Plain (in Angoville-Au-Plain), Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer (D-Day Monument & Omaha Beach) and Colleville-sur-Mer (Normandy American Cemetery & Memorial 1st US Infantry Division Omaha Beach).
