Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Versailles, Paris & Seine Cruise
This morning, we enjoy a guided tour the Palace and Gardens of Versailles, considered to be one of the most magnificent achievements of 18th century French architecture and design. The awe-inspiring Hall of Mirrors and astonishingly beautiful palatial grounds are highlights of France’s most famous château. In the afternoon we travel into Paris and enjoy a relaxing 1 hour cruise on the River Seine before enjoying free time to explore this amazing city.

Day 3 Château de Vaux le Vicomte
We will spend the morning at leisure and enjoy lunch at our hotel before boarding our coach to visit another beautiful château, Vaux le Vicomte, where we spend the evening exploring this magical estate by the flickering lights of 2,000 candles before the night ends with a display of fireworks! Dinner can be enjoyed in the self-service restaurant during the evening (not included).

Day 4 Giverny & Vernon
After an early breakfast this morning, we travel to Monet’s country retreat in Giverny where we visit the impressionist painter’s charming pink house and iconic gardens. We can then relax in the gardens at our leisure, admiring the Japanese bridge and famous waterlily pond. We then travel to the pretty neighbouring village of Vernon and discover over 200 half-timbered houses with ancient doors and carved timbers, wrought iron shop signs, cobbled paths and the famous Old Mill. We enjoy lunch here and spend the afternoon exploring the church, museums, the village and the banks of the River Seine at leisure.
