Full description
Enjoy an unforgettable day trip to the magnificent 17th century Chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed with champagne and macaroons, and get up to 3 hours to discover the majesty of one of Europe's most influential architectural landmarks and the inspiration behind the Palace of Versailles.

Built from 1656 to 1661 for Nicolas Fouquet, the superintendent of finances of King Louis XIV, the castle's glorious collaboration by the architect Louis Le Vau, the landscape architect André le Nôtre, and the painter-decorator Charles Le Brun, marked the start of the "Louis XIV style."

Tour the exquisite apartments and sumptuous state rooms, and marvel at the gilded walls, statues, tapestries, and fine furnishings. Another of the château's wonderful features is its amazingly beautiful Le Notre designed gardens, perfect for a moderate stroll or a golf cart ride. Complete with fountains, canals, and stone curbs, the gardens contain a fascinating optical illusion, distorting its distance depending on from where you look at it.

Then, return to Paris by luxury limousine, with a drop off at a city center location of your choice.
