Visit a delightful chateau on the edge of Paris as we follow in the footsteps of Napoleon Bonaparte and his beloved wife Josephine. Return to Paris to conclude your day on the top of the magnificent Arc de Triomphe, for some of the best views of the city.

Meet your expert local guide in a location in the city center and board a luxury coach for the short trip to Malmaison, the enchanting chateau that was once the countryside home of Napoleon and the love of his life, his first wife Josephine de Beauharnais. Step back in time as your guide leads you around the house, its luxurious rooms still furnished as they would have been at the time of this legendary couple. Admire their remarkable portraits, intricately decorated rooms and furniture. Learn of their love affair through to the tragedy of their divorce, all set within the pomp and grandeur of Napoleon’s public life as General and Emperor.

You will also see the gardens where Josephine lovingly nurtured her now famous roses, and be able to enjoy the tranquility of this exquisite corner of countryside, seemingly so far from the noise and power of the city. Yet this house also became a place of power when Napoleon was in residence, with many influential visitors passing through its doors. After their divorce, Josephine continued to live at Malmaison, and the power and prestige of Napoleon slowly declined, ending with his exile in 1814.

Board your coach for the short trip back to Paris, where your guide will lead you to one of the greatest monuments to Napoleon’s glories, and now one of the iconic symbols of Paris, the Arc de Triomphe. Enjoy skip the line access to the viewing platform on the top of the Arch, offering some of the best views of the city, including spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. Don't miss the unique panorama of the star shaped boulevards radiating out below you, then spend your evening on one of the world’s most elegant streets, the Avenue des Champs Elysées. Your guide will be glad to provide suggestions to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable Parisian evening.
