Versailles and Giverny - Day trip from Paris with lunch

by PARISCityVISION Duration 9h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$326

We’ll hazard a guess that the Palace of Versailles and Monet’s Garden at Giverny are on your French bucket list (we all have one of those, right) Thanks to our round trip from Paris you can enjoy both in the same day. Want to feel like you’re in one of Monet’s paintings. Check! Your visit to his gardens in Giverny is the closest you’re gonna get, as you gaze at your reflection in the water lily pond that inspired his Nymphéas series and cross the Japanese bridge featured in his paintings. Want to see how the other half lived. Compare your décor to that of Louis XIV at the majestic palace of Versailles. Don’t forget your crown and easel as you head out on this two-in-one day trip. First stop, Giverny, where Monet spent the end of his life surrounded by the lush foliage and water features that so inspired him. You’re bound to be inspired too as you explore the sprawling gardens of the property. After a sumptuous lunch at the Moulin de Fourges riverbank restaurant, you’ll head to Versailles and experience the rich splendour of this former palace, visiting the royal apartments and impressive Hall of Mirrors with your art historian guide. Then it’s out to the backyard (an understatement if ever there was one!) to wander through the tree-lined avenues and extensive landscaped gardens. Choose the right date (see below) and you’ll be lucky enough to see the Musical Fountains show with fountains ‘dancing’ in time to numbers from Louis XIV’s reign. Finally, you’ll hop back on the bus to be transported back to Paris in comfort.

Giverny was awesome! I would recommend this part of the tour to everyone. The gardens are the most beautiful I have ever seen! Versailles was much too crowded and the inside tour, which was interesting, lasted so long that we were unable to use our garden passes to see the Versailles gardens due to lack of time. We were mislead on the website to think that on Sundays, there would be some kind of water fountain display/show, which we did not see.

Jean-Louis was an excellent tour guide. Very clear and organized. We were split off into a smaller group for the Versailles part with Vincent. we found Vincent’s humor a little off color. Versailles itself was bad because it was so over crowded that it felt dangerous. Skip Versailles.

The experience was quite out of the world - Versailles Palace was so grand and beautiful, worth a visit. If you are into arts Claude Monet house was dreamy. Our guide was superb too, he told us many stories, very funny French guy whose name I forgot. The only thing we have to complain was the lunch at Moulin de Fourges where the waiting staff don't speak any English and no one could tell us what we were eating (kind of like a surprise lunch!). That's not very good in case some people are allergic to certain food types.
