Your itinerary

​Today you'll travel from London St Pancras International to Paris, with an onward coach journey to your hotel.
Get to know your fellow travellers over a drink and dinner this evening.

​Dating back to the 17th century, the UNESCO-listed Château de Versailles is set amid spectacular landscaped gardens. It was once a hunting lodge, a seat of government and a symbol of the power of the French monarchy. We'll head here on today's optional excursion and step inside the palace for a tour. It contains more than 2,000 ornately decorated rooms and we'll see many of them, including the famous Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919. This magnificent 73-metre-long room boasts 17 mirror-encrusted arches on the wall opposite the windows and a fabulous collection of statues and busts. Other highlights include the lavishly decorated King's State Apartments and the Royal Chapel with its beautiful vaulted ceiling.
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.

​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 Japanese bridge which is covered with wisteria - 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.​

​Today we will return to the UK by Eurostar to St Pancras International​.

Gardens of Chateau de Versailles -The history of the Palace of Versailles starts at the 17th century. It was first a hunting lodge, then a seat of power, and finally, from the 19th century onwards, a museum. Composed of the Palace, the gardens, the Park, the Trianon estate and several buildings in town, today the Estate of Versailles spreads over more than 800 hectares.

In 1661 Louis XIV entrusted André Le Nôtre with the creation and renovation of the gardens, which he considered just as important as the Palace. Work on the gardens was started at the same time as the work on the palace and lasted for nearly 40 years with each project being reviewed by the King himself, who was keen to see “every detail”. The gardens have now been fully replanted and now boast an appearance similar to how it would have looked to Louis XIV.
