Spend a day discovering the two iconic sites of France with complete autonomy. With the bus departing at 8:15am, you will be driven to the Fondation Claude Monet where you will visit the Garden at Giverny and Monet’s home at your own leisure. Appreciate the reading room, also known as the “blue room”, the sunflower-yellow dining room adorned with Japanese prints, and the private apartments. Continue into Monet’s studio which is a gift shop today, stocked with a variety of souvenirs. Next, discover the house and workshop of this master of Impressionism. Amble through flower-lined paths that inspired the artist’s impressionist paintings. Revel in the lavish, multi-colored flower beds. Step into Clos-Normand, home to several Far East plants and vegetation. Cross the water by the Japanese bridge and peer over the edge to see the famous water lilies found in the celebrated paintings. Experience Monet’s universe in an exotic, ethereal atmosphere. Climb aboard your bus which will take you to the Moulin de Fourges restaurant for a Normandy meal.
After your meal, head to the Palace of Versailles. With priority access that eases your entrance, your audio guide will point you in the right direction as you discover the King’s Chambers. Enter seven rooms, each decorated in the style of a God. Then, head towards the magnificent Hall of Mirrors, where guests were invited during celebrations. This gorgeous hall overlooks the Versailles Gardens. Admire the emblem of the Sun King, Louis XIV, one of the ornate symbols that represent 17th Century French Art. When in season, head out for a Musical Fountains Show and to the Musical Garden. If not in season, take your time to explore the statues, sculptures, fountains, flowerbeds, coppices, and reflecting pools. Under the leadership of Louis XIV, Andrè le Nôtre designed the Palace gardens, endowing this gorgeous Palace with unique, grandiose proportions. This experience is unlike any other, giving you a feel of grandiosity and luxury.
