Impressionists' day tour
Giverny and Paris
Come spend the day with Monet and the Impressionists. We'll start by visiting Monet's home and gardens in Giverny, so as to immerse ourselves in the artist's environment and mindset. Then we will head back to Paris to enjoy impressionist painting, in one of the 3 Parisian museums that host them.

Renaissance art and history day tour
Chantilly castle and Old Paris
Located a few miles north of Paris, the castle of Chantilly is an absolute marvel of the region. We will go visit the monument and park, and relish in the admiration of its amazing Renaissance painting collection (the largest in France after the Louvre's). Then we will head back to Paris to discover some of the city's oldest homes and mansions.
Time-travel to the Middle Ages
Vincennes castle and Sainte-Chapelle
Right on the outskirts of Paris sits the oldest royal castle in France! Overlooked by most tourists, its medieval architecture and its tumultuous history make it one of my favorite monuments. And after that we may head back to the city center and go see the absolutely fabulous stained glass windows of the Sainte Chapelle.
