DAY 3

Half Day Tour from Paris to Giverny, the Eiffel Tower and Evening Food Tour

This morning you will meet with your English-speaking driver for a half day private return transfer from Paris to Giverny. Skip the line entrances are included at Giverny. Return to Paris at lunchtime and your driver will drop you off near the Eiffel Tower where you can enjoy an optional lunch before an included visit to the Eiffel Tower (including tickets to the summit). This evening we include a small group scheduled food walking tour in the Montmartre district. Return to your hotel afterwards at your leisure.

Giverny Monet's Garden - There are two parts in Monet's garden: a flower garden called Clos Normand in front of the house and a Japanese inspired water garden on the other side of the road. The two parts of Monet's garden contrast and complement one another. When Monet and his family settled in Giverny in 1883 the  piece of land sloping gently down from the house to the road was planted with an orchard and enclosed by high stone walls. A central alley bordered with pines separated it into two parts. Monet had the pines cut down, keeping only the two yews closest to the house to please Alice. From this Clos Normand of about one hectare, Monet made a garden full of perspectives, symmetries and colours. In 1893, ten years after his arrival at Giverny, Monet bought the piece of land neighbouring his property on the other side of the railway. It was crossed by a small brook, the Ru, which is a diversion of the Epte, a tributary of the Seine River. With the support of the prefecture, Monet had the first small pond dug which would be enlarged to its present day size. 

Eiffel Tower - Tickets are included to the summit of The Eiffel Tower. The tower offers three experiences: With its transparent floor and its new glass balustrades, the 1st floor offers you a brand-new experience and a breath-taking view. Walk on the glass floor, 57m from the ground, and experience the unique sensation of stepping out into the void. On the second floor, treat yourself to some modern French gastronomic cuisine and a unique visual and culinary experience, all in an immaculate and classy setting. Or simply be wowed by Paris and all her splendour with clear views to the Capital's momuments. After a spectacular ascent  in glass-walled lifts, you will reach the top of the Tower, 267m up! 

Montmartre Evening Food Tour The Montmartre and South Pigalle areas really come alive in the evening, when the tourists are gone and the true Parisians come out to enjoy the area's secret wine bars and restaurants. The little streets and cobbled lanes are transformed at night, illuminated by the warm glow of the Paris street lamps and candles from restaurants. 

DAY 4

Private Transfer to Paris Gare Du Nord, Train to Bayeux 

Meet your driver in the lobby of the hotel for a private transfer to a Paris rail station to catch a train to Bayeux. We include first class tickets on the train from Paris to Bayeux Train Station and on arrival at Bayeux Rail Station you will be met by an English-speaking driver holding a sign with your name on. Your driver will escort you to your car and travel direct to the Bayeux Tapestry for an included visit. Afterwards, he will continue to your hotel where you will check in and relax for the evening.

The Bayeux Tapestry - a unique artefact created in the 11th Century

Step into the engrossing story of the conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy in 1066, told in a 70 meters long embroidery. With a visit to the museum, you can discover the complete Bayeux Tapestry, study it close up without causing damage to it, and understand its history and how it was created thanks to an audio-guide commentary available in 16 languages. A commentary for children is also available in French and English. A permanent exhibition on the first floor and a film will enrich your visit.

Chateau La Cheneviere

A former mansion and farm, this magnificent Norman chateau of the eighteenth century, “La Chenevière”, finds its charm in the testimony of the times it went through.

During the day your driver/guide will discuss the history of the war (from German occupation to French Resistance) and speak about so many different soldiers’ war stories. After a quick stop at the German Cemetery, visit Pointe du Hoc and you will also make a stop at the best-known Bloody Omaha.
