Château week­end and Monet’s Gar­den by rail

Take the Eurostar to Paris and travel on by coach to Giverny, home to Claude Monet un­til his death in 1926. Its gar­dens in­spired his ex­tra­or­di­nary se­ries of wa­ter lily paint­ings. En route, take an op­tional tour of the Château de Chan­tilly and its fa­mous col­lec­tion of Old Mas­ters, vir­tu­ally un­touched since 1898. In ad­di­tion to the famed lily pond, ex­plore the Ja­panese-style wa­ter gar­den and the Ja­panese bridge cov­ered with wis­te­ria, which is de­picted in many of Monet’s works.
