Well, according to international travel site Lonely Planet (France) it's our very own Place Plumereau in Tours. Having spent time during every season of the year there, we have to agree. Its has its own feel that you really only recognize when you return for a second or third visit. You have a mix of local students, tourists and the business world all looking to escape - and Place Plumerau is the ideal place to do just that. You are spoilt for choice with regards to cafes and restaurants but as you sit, you have to take in your surroundings, you will be charmed by the restored half-timbered houses that watch over you from the past.
We can understand it claiming the top spot and yet the city of Tours itself has so much more to offer
