Experience Intro
Detail
Have an unforgettable glimpse of royal and imperial luxury of Medieval France! Visit two of the country’s most famous chateaux, whose beauty and elegance will remind you of its glorious past. Travel with us to Vaux le Vicomte, built by three of France’s greatest artists in the 17th century. Nicolas Fouquet was an avid art patron and known for his impeccable taste. Albeit you may learn how the envy of one of his peers had led to Fouquet’s tragic fall from royal favor, you’ll remember the man for this architectural treasure. Through his ideals, the king’s architect, painter-interior decorator, and landscape artist whom Fouquet had hired for his chateau were able to come up with their greatest masterpieces -- Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte and the Palace of Versailles. Even the vast Baroque gardens appear surreal in their loveliness. You won’t feel surprised that this place has been chosen as a setting for several famous films and TV shows. Get acquainted with yet another historic and marvelous chateau! Fontainebleau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, had been a favorite residence of French monarchs since the 12th century due to its splendid hunting ground and serene surroundings. From Louis VII to Napoleon III, this place has seen a lot of magnificent improvements and expansion. Peter the Great of Russia, among many other royal guests, has also been welcomed at this chateau. Every inch of this place and its attractive gardens is full of art and history. ◆Please Note: *Language: English, Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese *Departure: 9:15 am, 2 rue des Pyramides 75001 Paris *Please be ready at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour begins. *Duration: 9 hours (approx.) *Return: Back in Paris at around 6:15 pm *Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking. ◆Availability: ~ 2019/10/31, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday ◆Age Requirement: None
