Summary

Experience two quintessential sites from the Paris area, from both the impressionist and baroque eras: Giverny and the Palace of Versailles.

Take your seat aboard an air-conditioned tour bus departing at 8:15 a.m. from Paris. You’ll be driven to the Fondation Claude Monet, where you can visit the garden at Giverny and Monet’s home at your own leisure. See Giverny at your own pace, starting with Monet’s home. 

Continue your visit in Monet’s studio, today a gift shop where you can find a variety of souvenirs. Next, turn on your audio guide for commentary as you visit Monet’s garden. Revel in the lavish, multicolored flower beds. Step into the Clos-Normand, home to many Far Eastern plants and vegetation. Cross the water garden by the Japanese bridge. Take your time as you experience Monet’s universe in an exotic, ethereal atmosphere.

Next, depart for Moulin de Fourges restaurant located 10 minutes from Giverny, where you will be served a lunch that includes traditional Normand fare.

After the meal, it’s off to the Palace of Versailles. Priority access lets you get the most out of your Versailles visit. Your audio guide will point you in the right direction as you discover the King’s chambers. You will enter seven rooms, each decorated in the style of a God. Next, enter the magnificent Hall of Mirrors, where guests were invited during celebrations. The hall overlooks Versailles gardens. Admire the emblem of the Sun King, Louis XIV, one of the most ornate symbols to represent 17th century French art.

If it is not the season for the Musical Fountains Show and Musical Gardens, you can take time to explore the gardens, where statues, sculptures, fountains, flowerbeds, coppices and reflecting pools are all aligned. Under Louis XIV, André le Nôtre designed the Palace’s gardens, endowing them with unique, grandiose proportions.

You will depart Versailles around 5:00 p.m., reaching Paris at about 5:45 p.m.

Departure Time: 8:15 am
