An important crossroads in the centre of France, Tours is situated at the heart of a European communication network, Tours is one of the major centres of France. The TGV high speed train puts Tours at only 55 minutes from the centre of Paris, and allows direct connections to all the major airports.
Modern motorway networks link Tours to other major centres of France. An International airport at the gates of the city adds a guarantee of easy, rapid transport to anywhere in France. (From http://www.ligeris.com/usa/europe.html)
