Summary

Immerse yourself with French history and culture with an afternoon tour of the Versailles Palace.

Leave your Paris accommodation at 1:15 p.m. for a minibus journey to the Palace of Versailles; arrival scheduled for around 2:15 p.m. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of eight people to allow you to enjoy a personalized tour with your driver-guide.

Stretching for more than 721,000 square feet, the Palace of Versailles has over 700 rooms. Follow your guide straight to the front of the line to tour the palace's most beautiful rooms: the King's Grand Apartments, with seven rooms each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.), and the Queen's Grand Apartments, mirroring those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette. Also, marvel at the majestic "Hall of Mirrors" Versailles, a large reception room in which to see and be seen, dreamed up by the famous architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was created to astonish visitors to the Sun King, Louis XIV; it is lit by 17 windows and some 350 mirrors, and overlooks the palace's breath-taking gardens, the second part of your visit.

In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned the landscape architect André Le Nôtre to lay out the grounds and gardens, something that was just as important as the construction of the palace itself as far as the king was concerned. Enjoy your free time and explore the Gardens of Versailles, admiring the magnificent sculpted decoration (marble statues, busts, and vases), fountains, and pools.

Your return to your Paris accommodation is scheduled for approximately 5:15 p.m.

This tour is available in the following languages: English, French, Italian and Spanish.

Departure Time: 1:15 pm

Meeting Point: From your hotel or apartment in Paris
