Today is a very special day... Amazing flights over Paris, private tour of Versailles with lunch at the new Ore Café – Alain Ducasse.
You will board a private helicopter and discover the west side of Paris from the sky with an amazing 25 minutes flight over Paris, Parc des Princes, Bois de Boulogne, the Longchamp hippodrome, the Saint-Cloud park, on top of Château de Versailles and the Roi Soleil’s gardens.
Behind the Château de Versailles, the helicopter will land at Saint-Cyr l’Ecole. Your pilot will give you a brief introduction to the helicopter skills. Share a warm and privileged moment with your captain and seize this opportunity to talk about the fascinating helicopter universe and take some pictures in front of the helicopter.
From there you will enjoy a private visit of the Château de Versailles. Louis XIV spared no expense in renovating this once modest hunting lodge and, in 1682, the Chateau became the official residence of the king and his court. In the palace itself hundreds of rooms, glittering with gold, crystal and mirrors beg exploration and you can discover the State Apartments of the king and queen at your own pace. A fascinating tour of the King’s Chamber lends intriguing insight, and the Hall of Mirrors reflects an unrivaled era of opulence.
The formal Le Notre gardens are reason enough to come here—acres of meticulous landscaping, dazzling fountains embellished with mythical creatures, and a tram encircles the park, showcasing off the vast grounds.
Lunch at the new Ore Café – an Alain Ducasse restaurant. An exceptional setting for an elegant French style café. One can admire the Château through the windows overlooking the cour Royale and the cour d’Honneur.
On the way back to Paris over the Seine enjoy a breath-taking view of Trocadero, Tour Montparnasse, and of course a stunning view on the famous Eiffel Tower…
