Meet a driver at a central location in Paris, and then board a climate-controlled coach for the scenic trip to Vaux-le-Vicomte, a baroque castle that’s said to have inspired the Palace of Versailles. If you selected a guided tour, check out the castle’s highlights with a guide, or use the prerecorded audio guide to discover the castle on your own.
At both locations, the guided tour will be followed by time for independent exploration, perfect for absorbing the historic atmosphere of the ornate gardens. Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte has an onsite cafe, where you may purchase lunch or drinks (own expense).
Following your time at Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, continue to Fontainebleau, the UNESCO-listed estate that housed French royalty for centuries. Don’t miss the gardens and lakes that extend beyond the castle before you meet back up with the coach for the return trip to Paris, where this tour concludes.
