- Acquaintance with the Cathedral of Our Lady of Sharts. The cathedral is unique in that it is the best preserved of all similar structures of the French classical Gothic, it was practically not touched by time. Constant restorations, which have been going on since the late 90s, return the cathedral to its former appearance, which it had when it was consecrated in the presence of Saint Louis in the 13th century. We will see the Romanesque crypt, one of the largest in France, admire the 13th century stained glass ensemble, learn about the secrets of their manufacture, get acquainted with the magnificent sculpture that adorns the facades, as well as the famous labyrinth. For those who wish, we can climb one of the towers and see Chartres from a bird's eye view.
- Walk through the ancient streets, discover the houses of the Middle Ages, such as the "Salmon House", the Romanesque house or the tower of Queen Bertha.
- Church of St. Anian, the center of the only parish of the city, rebuilt from the previously existing 11, abolished during the Revolution.
- St. Peter's Church, which was part of the Benedictine abbey before the French Revolution. The second most important temple of Chartres, which has preserved the stained glass windows of the Middle Ages.
- Walk along the canals with picturesque views of the cathedral.
- We depart by train from Gare Montparnasse in Paris, travel time is one hour each way.
- The approximate duration of the excursion is 7-8 hours (two and a half hours of which are spent on the road).
