Paris - Giverny - Versailles - Paris

Spend the day discovering two unmissable sights near Paris: Giverny and the Palace of Versailles. Giverny, a village of timeless beauty once the inspiration for Claude Monet's artwork, is a must-see for any die-hard fan of Impressionism.

We'll set off at 8:15am from local agency in central Paris. The journey to Giverny by luxury air-conditioned coach takes approximately one hour and 30 minutes. Soak up the world of Claude Monet, famous for painting different corners of his garden: Water Lilies and the Japanese Bridge among others. Passionate about gardening and nature's changing colors, Monet designed his flower and water gardens as if they were works of art. During your visit of Monet's garden at Giverny, admire the multicolored flower beds, the Clos Normand Flower Garden with its many Eastern plants, and the lush water garden, famous for its water lilies and Japanese bridge.

Take advantage of the allotted free time to visit Claude Monet's house, where he lived and worked. Explore the reading room - leading into the larder - and the artist's studio. Visit the bright yellow dining room, which has been reconstructed down to the very last detail, with earthenware dishes and a blue-tiled kitchen. In the dining room, marvel at one of the world's most important collections of Japanese prints. At the end of your visit, explore the village and treat yourself to some souvenir shopping in the gift and book shop, once the studio where Monet painted Water Lilies.

After visiting Giverny, enjoy a tasty lunch at the Moulin de Fourges restaurant, where you can sample local food with a twist.

In the afternoon, explore the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Covering more than 721,000 square feet, the Palace has over 700 rooms. Follow your guide to the front of the line to see the most impressive rooms: the King's Apartments, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god, and the Queen's Apartments. We'll also visit the majestic Hall of Mirrors, a reception room in which to see and be seen, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Explore the Gardens of Versailles at your own pace and marvel at its many works of art, fountains, ponds, flower beds and groves of trees. In Summer, a range of activities is staged in the gardens, such as the Grandes Eaux Musicales, when the fountains dance in time with music.
