About the Experience

Indulge yourself with a visit to Versailles Palace and experience the extravagant architecture and décor of this royal residence. Relive the glorious periods of Louis XIV, XV, XVI as you peruse the Palace at your own pace. This Versailles tour will take you to the palace and allows you the freedom to explore the decadent State Apartments, with its elegant reception halls, Queen's bedroom and wondrous Hall of Mirrors. Then take your time as you roam the vast palace gardens, designed by André le Notre.

On route towards Versailles, you can listen to a recorded commentary about the history of Versailles (with background baroque style music) to give you some background about the palace so you can get the most out of your visit to this fascinating and historical site.

Travel back into France’s history to a period of decadence and royal excess experienced prior to the French Revolution. Versailles is known as the ultimate celebration of the flamboyant styles of the King Louis’ fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth. Combining a mixture of Classical and Baroque styles, the Palace has been on the World Heritage list for 30 years.

Versailles also boasts an impressive history from bygone years. Keep your eyes open for the hidden door in the Queens bedchamber that Marie-Antoinette escaped through when the Palace was stormed by a Paris mob during the Revolution.
