Musee Des Beux Arts - Tours

No comments:
 
Yesterday afternoon we arrived in the  slightly overcast town of Tours in France for a night before heading on down south to the Auvergne for Christmas. 


We arrived late afternoon and ventured out in search of some Vin Chaud and a little culture. 

We stumbled across a fantastic Christmas market celebrating its last day before Christmas itself...




We warmed up with some piping hot mulled wine.


Once we had exhausted every stall of the market and the warmth of the Vin Chaud was most certainly wearing off we stumbled across a beautiful Museum with a fantastic impressionist exhibition. 






After a good boost of culture, that evening we found a fantastic local restaurant and had the Plat du Jour. 

Once finished we walked through the seasonally lit streets to our hotel. We resisted this tempting Chocolaterie, serving piping hot chocolate to those who wanted some respite from the chill. 


We headed to bed excited to see the famous food market in the morning, Les Halles - a foodie paradise so I had been told!
