Giverny and Versailles Palace and Gardens Private Tour

Discover two of the must-sees outside of Paris. Monet's house and charming gardens and the Majestic Palace of Versailles and the royal gardens

Giverny and Versailles Private Tour allows you to enjoy two different historical places in the same day. After a 40 minute drive along the Valley of the Seine with your private english speaking driver, you will arrive to Giverny, a small village fifty miles to the west of Paris, a unique place with a timeless charm.

 

Here, the master of Impressionism, Claude Monet, lived from 1883 until his death in 1926. For 43 years Monet settled down in this house that he completely renovated. He also transformed the whole domain, including the garden that he so much appreciated and became the model for his paintings. You will marvel at the floral compositions of the gardens and the famous Japanese bridge. He used to say: "Beyond painting and gardening, I am good for nothing." He became obsessed with garden-making and his flowers accompanied him in the high and low moments of his life in Giverny.

 

Having lunch in Giverny is a good idea before heading to Versailles. Check our recommendations below to see the options.

 

Continue your tour to the Palace of Versailles, considered one of the most beautiful achievements in French art and architecture of the 17th century. Its origins date back to the seventeenth century, it was successively a hunting lodge, a seat of power and, from the nineteenth century, a museum. Enjoy a walk in the gardens, developed and extended by the gardener André Le Nôtre, who widened the Royal Way and dug the Grand Canal, and finish your visit at the Trianon and the Queen's Hamlet revealing the world of Marie Antoinette.
