Disfrute de una visita independiente desde París al castillo de Vaux-le-Vicomte, conocido como el origen de la idea del Palacio de Versalles, con este paquete que le ofrece acceso al castillo y traslado de ida y vuelta en el servicio de autobuses de "Chateaubus" desde la estación de tren local. Deberá viajar por su cuenta hasta la estación local de Verneuil L'Etang en el tren RER desde París. Cuando llegue a Vaux-le-Vicomte, explore la finca para conocer la historia de Nicolás Fouquet, ministro de finanzas del rey Luis XIV, cuya extravagancia al crear su castillo y los jardines hizo que fuera encarcelado por el Rey Sol.
It was an interesting place, well worth the trip, with carriages the family used, lots of outbuilings we couldn't go into, and of course, in the winter, the famous gardens were bare, tho still well demarcated with hedges. I had a receipt on my phone to show to get in, but they wanted to charge me for the recording one takes to each station to hear the info in ones native tongue. I thought that was included, but I couldn't get internet there, hence the list of what was included. The lady called, and was told it wasn't included. It would be nice if that was listed on the receipt, or whatever it was on the phone that let them know I'd paid.
I think the Xmas decorations were a hindrance to really seeing the castle, and really weren't that spectacular. The trip, we were told, was about 4 and a half hours, but by the time you get to the train station, onto the shuttle, see the castle, etc, It's more like six.
