This Versailles tour will depart from your Paris accommodations to visit the Palace of Versailles.
Versailles is a wealthy suburb 11 miles Southwest of Paris and the Chateau de Versailles dominates the town.
The Palace of Versailles was the capital of the kingdom of France for over a century from 1682 to 1789 (when the French Revolution began) and as such holds an amazing amount of history with the Royal courts of King Louis XIII, his son Louis XIV, the "Sun King", Louis XV, and Louis XVI. Stripped of its furniture and ornaments during the French Revolution, it was abandoned until 1830 with King Louis-Philippe transformed it into a National Museum.
Touring the Palace with your guide, you'll see the Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Hall of Battles, and you should be able to enjoy some time strolling in the gardens of Versailles. Designed by Andre Le Notre, the classic French Garden style was perfected here.
You will then visit the Versailles gardens which are very special have will have the chance to appreciate the estate's beauty with its setting near the Grand Canal.
You'll have a three course lunch (wine included) followed by a visit to the Grand Trianon, a marble palace listed as a UNESCO World Heritage location. You'll then visit Marie Antoinette's Hamlet, a Norman-style thatched cottage built for the Queen.
The Versailles tour will end with a return to your Paris hotel or apartment.
