What people are saying about Château de Chambord

Easy and convenient to have the skip the line Tickets to enter the castle. Really amazing architecture, worth it to look inside and wander along the corridors and go up and down the spiral and the double helix staircases. The gardens are accessible to the public without buying tickets. There is one cafeteria inside the walls but at least 4-5 outside. We cycled the grounds, it's huge!

Unfortunately there was no great advantage because of Corona. The queue in front of the security checks was longer due to the distance rules and all visitors have to go through. There was no way to bypass it to get in faster. Due to the separation, you cannot walk past the queue, which is controlled by the security staff that there are not too many people there.

It was my dream and trip was great. I was very happy that the weather let us fly. The Crue was super they had a lot of job with preparing the balloon but they are very organized so everything was perfect. And in the end there was refreshments with champagne with sunshine in the back so it was AMAZING!!!
