The Tours Loire Valley Tourist Office and the city of Tours offer a thematic tour of the Old Town of Tours, led by a guide.

To the west of the Rue Nationale, the Vieux Tours district extends around the Place Plumereau. It is characterised by a dense and ancient habitat. There is a homogeneous group of half-timbered houses alongside exceptional town houses. These residences bear witness to the prosperity of this sector of the town, which was developed around a huge collegiate church dedicated to Saint Martin. Once housing the body of the saint, it was the centre of one of the oldest pilgrimages in Christianity.
