After a pleasant lunch, you will visit the majestic Palace of Versailles led by an expert guide who is passionate about the history of France.


Entrance of the Palace of Versailles

Pick up at your Paris accommodation at 8:15 a.m.. The number of participants is limited to eight to allow you to enjoy a personalised excursion with your driver-guide. 

Start the day trip by discovering the Palace and Gardens of Versailles for about 2 hours. Your guide will take you to the palace entrance. Skip the line to visit the most beautiful rooms with a guided tour: these include the King's Apartments, with seven salons each decorated on the theme of a different god, and the Queen's Apartments. Stroll along the sparkling Hall of Mirrors, imagined by the architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart as a place for parading and being seen. Designed to dazzle the Sun King's visitors, this huge hall with marble and gilded bronze decoration was somewhere to stroll and meet.  Once your guide has told you about the different parts of the palace, spend time exploring the Gardens of Versailles while you admire their magnificent sculptures (marble statues, busts and vases), fountains and ponds.

After your two-hour visit, enjoy a delicious lunch at a restaurant, ten minutes from Giverny (local food with a twist).

Colorful Gardens of Giverny

In the afternoon, immerse yourself in the world of Claude Monet, famous for his many paintings of different views of his garden.  The artist Claude Monet lived in Giverny for more than 40 years, from 1883 until his death. Your driver-guide will take you to the gardens. Spend time wandering around the Clos Normand Flower Garden, home to a number of plants of Eastern origins, the multicolored flower beds, and the stunning water garden, so famous for its water lilies and Japanese bridge. 
Visit Claude Monet's house, where he lived and worked, at your own pace. Explore the reading room that leads into the larder and the artist's studio. As well as those of his private apartments, these rooms have been reconstructed with Monet's original furniture. Visit the dining room, home to Monet's collection of Japanese prints (one of the largest in the world), as well as the blue-tiled Kitchen. At the end of your tour, take the opportunity to visit the Impressionists Museum and the lovely gift and book shop housed in what was once the Water Lilies studio.

Your return to your Paris accommodation is scheduled for approximately 5:15 p.m.
