What to Expect
Spend a full-day at two very picturesque locations. Your tour will start with a car journey to Giverny, the small town where famous impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) lived for the last forty years of his life.

Claude Monet transformed his property into an extraordinary world of colours: the flower garden with its hundred of species and the water lily pond, marvellous japanese garden where he painted several versions, according to time and season change, of Les Nymphéas (“The water-lilies”).

Visit the house where the artist lived: his studio, his bedroom overlooking the garden and his beautiful collection of Japanese "estampes".

The second part of the day will take you straight to Versailles, where you will first make a stop for lunch (and wine!) in a French restaurant before heading to the majestic palace where the Royal Court of Louis XIV settled in 1682, before Louis XV and then Louis XVI made it their home until the events of the French Revolution. A stroll in the gardens designed by André Lenôtre will conclude this immersion into French history and culture.

Your Audiopen (your interactive audioguide) will lead you through the King's State Apartment, The Hall of Mirrors, The Queen's Apartment and the French gardens.

If you take the option of going during the Musical Shows you will enjoy classical music and fountains in full display, rendering your experience even more magical.
