Description

Spend the day discovering two remarkable sites near Paris: Monet's House in Giverny and the great Palace of Versailles.

Leave Paris through the western districts and make your way to Bonniere through the Normandy motorway. You'll reach Giverny in an hour-and-a-half.

This beautiful and iconic village was home to Claude Monet, the impressionist painter. He lived there from 1883 until his death in 1926. In the surroundings of his home, Monet created the famous flower and water garden with its Japanese bridge which became his main source of inspiration. Thousands of American painters came to France to discover the new French artistic trends. Claude Monet was a particular interest to the Americans and many of them studied at Giverny.

There will be a guided tour and commentary in the gardens before some designated free time to explore Monet's home and studio at your own pace.

The tour stops at the quaint 350-year-old Moulin de Fourges, where you will enjoy a tasty local lunch. The old mill was erected by the builders of the Hameau de la Reine (the Queen's Hamlet) near the Palace of Versailles.

Moulin de Fourges Lunch Menu

  • Fish loaf with dill cream

  • Poultry blanquette with mushrooms

  • Rice and vegetables

  • Apple pie

  • Coffee / Water

In the afternoon, head to the former home of French royalty. Versailles, built for Louis XIV to symbolize his power and the influence of France, bears witness to the luxurious court and the artistic genius of the 17th and the 18th centuries. Whether it is the gilt and marbles of the King's apartments, the silks of Marie- Antoinette's bedroom, or the impeccable design of Le Notre's gardens, you will feel you are entering a dream world where the history of France was written for more than a hundred years, just before the French Revolution.

After a guided visit of the Royal Apartments, you will have free time to visit the fabulous Gardens of the residence.
