Visit the French countryside on a tour to Vaux-le-Vicomte, a 17th-century château that was the inspiration for King Louis XIV’s masterpiece, the Palace of Versailles. Select either an afternoon or evening tour, depending on the day of the week; the Saturday evening tour provides the option to upgrade to include a candlelight dinner, if you wish. Transportation from Paris hotels to the château is included.
  • Vaux-le-Vicomte tour from Paris
  • Discover an excellent example of classic French architecture and gardens
  • Explore the château and grounds on your own
  • Upgrade to include a romantic French dinner at the château
Your experience begins with hotel pickup in Paris by 8-seater luxury minivan for the drive just outside the city to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte.

Afternoon tour:
You have about three hours at the château to explore independently with an audioguide. Learn about the man who commissioned the castle, the King of France’s finance minister, Nicholas Fouquet, who was eventually put in jail for upstaging the king with his extravagant home. Wander through the bedrooms and other interior spaces, and enjoy the beautiful French garden (jardin à la française)—86 acres (34 hectares) of fountains, flowers, lakes and landscaping. Your tour ends with return to Paris for hotel drop-off.

Evening tour:
When booking, you have the option to select the evening tour with or without a candlelight dinner at the château.
