What you can expect

Travel in comfort in an air-conditioned coach to the opulent Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and emblem of French royalty and extravagance. Skip the long entry lines at the chateau, which was the center of power under the “Sun King,” Louis the XIV, until the French Revolution.

Your audio guide leads you through King Louis XIV's and Queen Marie Antoinette's State Apartments, past the Baroque- and Gothic-inspired aesthetics of the Royal Chapel, and into the awe-inspiring Hall of Mirrors—a superb example of French opulence. Marvel at the 357 floor-to-ceiling mirrors lining the gold-adorned hall, glittering crystal chandeliers hanging above, and breathtaking views of the chateau's gardens from 17 large glass doors that allow the hall to glow with natural sunlight.

Take advantage of additional time to explore the enchanting manicured gardens designed in classic French formal garden style by André Le Nôtre in 1661, during the time the former hunting lodge was being transformed into the grand chateau we see today. This is also where you can see the seasonal and popular musical fountain shows along with ornamental water parterres, hundreds of statues, and numerous groves. After your explorations, rest your feet during your coach ride back to the beautiful city of Paris.
