Desfrute de uma excursão independente de Paris para o Castelo Vaux-le-Vicomte, conhecido como a origem para a ideia do Palácio de Versalhes, com este pacote que fornece entrada ao château e transporte de ida e volta no transporte "Chateaubus" a partir da estação ferroviária local. Você precisa ir por conta própria para o a estação Verneuil L'Etang local pelo trem RER saindo de Paris. Ao chegar em Vaux-le-Vicomte, explore o estado para aprender sobre a história de Nicolas Fouquet, o Ministro da Fazenda do Rei Luís XIV, cuja extravagância em criar seu castelo e jardins levaram à sua prisão pelo Rei Sol.
It was an interesting place, well worth the trip, with carriages the family used, lots of outbuilings we couldn't go into, and of course, in the winter, the famous gardens were bare, tho still well demarcated with hedges. I had a receipt on my phone to show to get in, but they wanted to charge me for the recording one takes to each station to hear the info in ones native tongue. I thought that was included, but I couldn't get internet there, hence the list of what was included. The lady called, and was told it wasn't included. It would be nice if that was listed on the receipt, or whatever it was on the phone that let them know I'd paid.
I think the Xmas decorations were a hindrance to really seeing the castle, and really weren't that spectacular. The trip, we were told, was about 4 and a half hours, but by the time you get to the train station, onto the shuttle, see the castle, etc, It's more like six.
