During this tour, meet with your Licensed Tour Guide who is going to take you to Melun where you will discover the impressive 17th century Château of Vaux-le-Vicomte. Nicolas Fouquet, a powerful court financier to Louis XIV, made the king so jealous when he saw his castle that it made him decide to build Versailles in order to have a castle “at least as beautiful”. Vaux-le-Vicomte’s continuing fame is due to André Le Nôtre’s stunning gardens, some of the finest in the Ile-de-France region.
