THE TOURIST TRAIN OF THE LOIR VALLEY

 

Traveling slowly in a train dating from the 1950s, the Loir Valley opens before you, from Thoré to Trôo – the village of Trôo and its troglodyte dwellings, the tunnel at Saint Rimay, Montoire and its station, unfortunately known due to its rôle in the 24 October 1940 meeting between Hitler and Pétain, the caves of Thoré la Rochette – and you will greet the TGV as it passes the exact spot where a TGV broke the world speed record at 513.3 km/h.



On your return to the former station of Thoré la Rochette, now the « Maison du Vin et des Produits des Terroirs Vendômois », take the opportunity to sample the produce of the region.
