What you can expect

Discover the most famous palace in France and explore with a detailed guided tour that shows you the secrets of the French monarchy. Your time in the onetime royal residence shows you the elegant design, remarkable history, and amazing secrets of Versailles.

Once you meet your guide in the city of Versailles, only a 30-minute train ride from central Paris, head straight into the former home of French kings. As you marvel at the ornate apartments and the magnificent décor of the Hall of Mirrors, your guide recounts the fascinating story of the rise and fall of the Ancien Régime, whose absolute hold over France was reflected in the grandeur of these halls.

In the exquisite groves and ponds of the gardens, learn about the secrets of the hydraulic system that has fed the fountains since the days of Louis XIV and the voluptuous parties and celebrations that took place on these grounds. On Tuesdays and Fridays in the summer, you can admire the Musical Gardens, while on summer weekends your tour includes the breathtaking Fountain Show in the gardens.

Upgrade your visit to a full day guided tour following your guide to the Marie-Antoinette's Estate (Full-Day Tour option). Visit the Grand Trianon and Queen's Hamlet. Discover this lovely place out of the crowd where the Queen used to cut herself off the effervecence of the main Palace.
