Overview
See two of the top sights in France, the Palace of Versailles and Monet's garden at Giverny, during a day trip from Paris. This full-day tour allows you to visit both Louis XIV's lavish palace, plus the picturesque gardens of the Giverny home that inspired many of Claude Monet's most famous paintings in one tour.
What to Expect
Leave Paris for a full-day tour of two of the most popular day trip destinations outside the French capital, Louis XIV's Palace of Versailles and Monet's garden in Giverny.

Begin with a visit to Giverny, where Impressionist master Claude Monet lived from 1883 until his death in 1926. The gardens that surround his former home were the inspiration for many of his most famous scenes, including the water lily pond he captured in the Nympheas series and the gentle arch of the Japanese bridge over that pond. Tour Monet's gardens, as many artists have, and see if you don't leave inspired.

After Giverny, take a midday break for lunch at the Moulin de Fourges, an 18th-century mill on the Epte River outside Giverny that's been transformed into a restaurant and inn. From there, continue your tour to Versailles.

The opulent Palace of Versailles was once the home of King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. On a tour of their extravagant apartments, try to imagine daily life for the royal family. Walk through the famous Hall of Mirrors, the Grand Apartments, and the Queen's Apartments as your guide helps bring history to life.

Enjoy some free time to wander through the expansive gardens behind the palace at Versailles before your day trip concludes and you travel back to Paris.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
The fountains in the Versailles gardens are part of a special display set to the music of Louis XIV's era on Saturdays and Sundays from April 2-October 30, on May 5, Tuesdays from May 24-June 28 and July 14. Entry fees to this special program are included in the cost of the day tour.

Beautiful Day Trip!

This palace is a must-see! Beautiful inside and out. We had a guided tour with a guide who claimed to speak English, but it was very difficult to understand her. Fortunately, we could still appreciate the surroundings. The gardens are extraordinary, but you have to...More

Two must see sites while in Paris

These two places are MUST SEE sites on the outskirts of Paris. YOU could rent a car and do the tours separate like I did but Monet's Giverny Gardens and home is NOT easy to find.

Thank Cindy R

No. Its best to get a package that skips the lines, gives you a tour with headphones and free time in the gardens.
