Meals included: D

Day 2 Plessis-Robinson - at Leisure

Today's optional excursion takes us to the formal gardens of the Château de Versailles. This UNESCO-listed building was once a hunting lodge, a seat of government and a symbol of the power of the French monarchy. The huge honey-coloured palace was built in the 17th century during the reign of Louis XIV, and at the same time the magnificent gardens were created by landscape artist André le Nôtre. As we explore, we'll see three large parterres, more than 200 sculptures, groves nestled among the woods, fountains and a spectacular orangery. With its exceptional architecture and delicious gastronomic delights, Paris is a seductive city. Sit back and enjoy the sights as they are wonderfully illuminated on an optional coach tour of the French capital this evening, with dinner included. Meals included: B

Day 3 Giverny

​It is said that the history of France is written in her gardens, and this is reflected in the many different horticultural styles found across the country.
Particularly delightful are the gardens of the famous French Impressionist Claude Monet in Giverny. He planted and painted here from 1883 until his death in 1926, gaining inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounded him.
Explore the artist's flower garden, Clos Normand, as well as the Japanese-style water garden. These two areas are a beautiful contrast to one another, yet are equally wonderful to explore.
The most famous feature is the lily pond, from which Monet gained so much inspiration, and his series of water-lily paintings is revered throughout the world.
As you stroll through the enchanting gardens don't miss the exquisite wisteria-covered Japanese bridge - it too is depicted in many of Monet's greatest works of art.
In the evening, we will gather as a group to enjoy a farewell drink.​

Meals included: B
