At sunset, explore the Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace and stroll around the beautiful gardens enjoying the classical music being played.
An exceptional evening! This enchanting château, a 17th century masterpiece which inspired Louis 14th to build Versailles, opens its doors to you. Your tour begins with a guided visit to the "Carriage Museum" where you can see horse-driven carriages from a roman carriage to the 20th century saloons.

Next, a 3-course candlelight dinner will be served in one of the restaurants in the château grounds including a complementary glass of red or white wine, water and coffee. The chef only uses seasonal French products from the local markets to prepare your high quality dishes. Vegetarian options are available.

After dinner, at sunset, you independently visit the château and stroll around the gardens brilliantly lit by 2,000 candles. Learn about the history of the Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace and France’s first garden from your complimentary audio-guide. To accompany this exceptional moment, recorded classical music is played in the garden to bring in a special touch.

Enjoy a romantic and enchanting evening in 17th century France.

A perfect evening! Helpful driver/guide to a magnificent spot. The fireworks over the beautiful landscape with full moon in cloudless sky capped off the night.

Very special tour. The evening was magical! I highly recommend for adults. I went with my aunt which was very nice but I think it's also a perfect tour for honeymooners.
