• Paris illuminations (1h30): Magical and magnificent by night, a drive through Paris and its beautiful illuminated buildings should not be missed by any visitor to the capital.
• The Grand Louvre Museum (3h): Our famous Grand Louvre walking tour begins with a stroll through the commercial area of the Louvre museum. The visit continues inside the museum where our guide presents various areas such as the medieval fortress, the modern pyramid, the Egyptian department and the most reputed works such as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.
• Orsay Museum (3h): This magnificent museum, located in the old Orsay railway station built in 1900, is dedicated to all forms of artistic expression: painting, sculpture and photography of the 1848-1914 period. The era of the impressionist painters is particularly well represented with the masterpieces of Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Degas... Admire the delicate brush strokes of Renoir, the serious self-portrait of Van Gogh, the radiance of a Monet landscape amongst other artisitic marvels.
• Versailles Palace and Trianons (Full day): Versailles is more than a palace surrounded by beautiful gardens. It also has a huge park where one can discover two small castles named Grand and Petit Trianons, former summer residences for the Kings who loved to rest and forget about the "Etiquette" of the Court.
• Fontainebleau and Barbizon (5h): The Fontainebleau palace, lavishly built and furnished in the Renaissance style style, was a favorite hunting residence of the French kings. The apartments occupied by Napoleon have recently been restored and are included in our tour. Barbizon has been known as an artistic center since the l9th century when Jean-François Millet and Robert Louis Stevenson lived there.

Partners are invited not to organize social events at the same time of these official events, and generally to ask the Secretariat for all information related to the social programme.
