Follow in the footsteps of two of the greatest artists of all time, along with the powerful kings and queens of France. Just some of the highlights to enjoy include the home of Claude Monet, one of the founders of impressionist painting, and the world famous Palace of Versailles, built by Louis XIV. We also visit the home of Leonardo da Vinci and the magnificent Château de Chenonceau. Based in the Île-de-France, we are in the perfect spot for visiting these places and enjoying a relaxing break.

DAY 1: LONDON – RAMBOUILLET

We journey aboard Eurostar from London to Paris and meet our coach for the transfer to our hotel near the quaint town of Rambouillet.

DAY 2: VERSAILLES AND CHARTRES

After breakfast we visit the Palace of Versailles, the most extravagant of chateaux, befitting the ego of Louis XIV. In the afternoon we travel to Chartres for free time to explore the half-timbered medieval streets and the iconic cathedral with its magnificent 12th-century stained glass windows.

DAY 3: THE LOIRE VALLEY

Today we venture into the Loire valley to visit the elegant town of Amboise; its majestic château overlooking the Loire river is the final resting place of the great Leonardo da Vinci. In the afternoon we visit Château de Chenonceau, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture which spans the Cher river.

DAY 4: MONET’S GARDEN – LONDON

This morning we travel by coach to the small village of Giverny, home to Claude Monet for over 40 years. The gardens here are among the finest in France and the inspiration for many of his great works. In the afternoon we join Eurostar for the return to London.
