Tours is located in the Indre-et-Loire department (the Loire Valley region) of France and has a population of over 140,000 people. It is famous for its old town, called Le Vieux Tours, and its many bridges crossing the river Loire. There are two Campanile hotels in Tours: Hotel Campanile TOURS SUD - Chambray les Tours and Hotel Campanile TOURS SUD - Joué lès Tours both of which are 6km from the centre of Tours.
Tours became part of the Roman Empire during the first century AD, when it was known as ‘Caesarodunum’ ("hill of Caesar"). It later became a focus of Christianity, and entered a new expansion phase in the 14th century. It was the seat of the monarchy at the time of Louis XI, during whose reign the silk industry was established. Tours suffered after the Court returned to Paris, but prospered again in the 19th century with the introduction of the railway.
