Start the day trip by discovering the Palace and Gardens of Versailles for about 2 hours. Your guide will take you to the palace entrance. Skip the line to visit the most beautiful rooms with a guided tour: these include the King's Apartments, with seven salons each decorated on the theme of a different god, and the Queen's Apartments. Stroll along the sparkling Hall of Mirrors, imagined by the architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart as a place for parading and being seen. Spend time exploring the Gardens of Versailles while you admire their magnificent sculptures (marble statues, busts and vases), fountains and ponds. After your two-hour visit, enjoy a delicious lunch at a restaurant, ten minutes from Giverny (local food with a twist). In the afternoon, immerse yourself in the world of Claude Monet, famous for his many paintings of different views of his garden. The artist Claude Monet lived in Giverny for more than 40 years, from 1883 until his death. Your driver-guide will take you to the gardens. Spend time wandering around the Clos Normand Flower Garden, home to a number of plants of Eastern origins, the multicolored flower beds, and the stunning water garden, so famous for its water lilies and Japanese bridge. At the end of your tour, take the opportunity to visit the Impressionists Museum and the lovely gift and book shop housed in what was once the Water Lilies studio.
