'''Saumur''' [http://www.ot-saumur.fr/uk/] is a small historical city in the [[France|French]] region of [[Pays de la Loire]], site of a dramatically situated ''château'' and the heart of its own world-renowned wine district. Population 30,000.
H==Get in==
MY BEST FRIEND IS TYLER'''Saumur''' is roughly 70km east of [[Angers]] and 80km west of [[Tours]]. Saumur is best accessed by train from either [[Tours]], [[Angers]] and other larger surrounding towns. Flights into Tours Airport or Angers Airport would be the most appropriate method of reaching Saumur from other countries. ==Get around== During the non-high peak season, public transport in and around Saumur is skeletal. Bus services often run a few times a day to Parnay, Turquant, Montsoreau and Fontevraud. However, services often do not run on Sundays. Taxis are available in Saumur itself but are often prohibitively expensive to destinations outside Saumur. ==See== *the ''Château de Saumur'' ==Do== The town itself is quiet and low-key with an array of small shops and winding cobbled streets. However, the majority of sights to see in the area are found in the suburbs and surrounding areas.
