What You Can Expect

Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Giverny, France

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, the Queen's Apartments and more as your guide helps bring history to life for you.

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.

Monet's gardens at Giverny were incredible, lunch by the river was excellent and seeing Versailles put the French Revolution into a different perspective.

Giverny is one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen! This is a must if you love Monet. Versailles was very beautiful but it was also very crowded. We did the audio tour through the palace before going to the gardens. The tour itself was great and our guide was awesome, but the palace was so jammed pack with people. Many were rude tourist who had no problem shoving their elbows in your face to get their picture. Nobody would just hang tight and wait their turn to take a photo. My recommendation is to take the train back to Paris after the audio tour and go explore the gardens. They are huge!! And you can walk to the farm from there which is a whole other tour in itself. You can also grab food inside the gardens. Its a super short train ride back to Paris and is totally worth it.
