Christmas Day Trip to Vaux le Vicomte from Paris
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Place des Pyramides, 75001 Paris France
Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in central Paris and travel out of the city to the spectacular Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, a baroque French castle constructed in the late 17th century.
Pass By: Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte, 77950 Maincy France
Widely considered to be one of France’s finest castles, Vaux-le-Vicomte is nestled in beautiful grounds just 55 kilometers (35 miles) from Paris and makes a wonderful day trip from the French capital.
Vaux-le-Vicomte takes on a fantastically festive atmosphere over the Christmas period, celebrating in style with fun for families and visitors of all ages. Children can dress up in 17th-century costumes to play at being princes, princesses, musketeers, dukes and duchesses, and enjoy the festive decorations and illuminations to the full.
Take in beautiful views of the magnificent castle and gardens adorned in twinkling Christmas lights, then step inside to take a tour with your audio guide. Marvel at Vaux-le-Vicomte’s sumptuous surroundings — including antique furnishings, ornate tapestries, lavishly gilded walls and beautiful stone statues — and explore the perfectly manicured gardens at your leisure.
If you fancy a bite to eat, head to the castle’s restaurant where a selection of light meals can be purchased (own expense). When your time at the castle is up, jump back in your coach for the return journey to central Paris where your Christmas day trip will come to an end.

I was sold tickets for a tour that was not scheduled to run that day. Complete waste of time especially when time is precious on a holiday. Very disappointed.
This tour was amazing!
A lovely afternoon but is was a shame to leave before it turned dark as we were unable to see the lights. The return journey took 2 hours due to heavy traffic.
