Your English-speaking guide will meet you in Versailles and lead you through the Gardens and Palace. We will skip the line via pre-booked entrance to Versailles and your guide will lead you from one marvelous room to the next, pointing out where Louis XIV tormented his friends and family with long, boring ceremonies and where it was that Marie Antoinette ate her cake.
Marvel at the sheer size of the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most beautiful castles in the world with a whopping 700 rooms. Peruse its incredible array of fine art and the intricate design of its 1250 fireplaces as you work your way through the highlights of the castle including the King and Queen’s apartments, the Chapel, the Coronation Room, the Hall of Mirrors and the Salon of Abundance– how many residences can boast one of those? This list of rooms your guide will show you goes on and on, each one an entirely different and unique experience from the Peace Room to the Queen’s bedchamber.
And just when you think that you have seen all that the Palace of Versailles has to offer, you’ll burst into the sunlight and encounter its dazzling manicured gardens, over 1,800 acres in size. On Thursdays we’ll give you a tour of the gardens and give you some free time to wander – but we suggest choosing a date when either the famousVersaillesFountain Show or Musical Gardensare running (all running days except Thursday). The ticket to the show will be included in your tour price. The Versailles Fountain Show is a wonderful live concert held in the exclusive groves, designed by André Le Nôtre. Watch fountains explode to the sounds of a cello at the Fountain Show or just be enchanted by the simple beauty of classical music played in beautiful surroundings during the Musical Gardens event.
Relax and reflect on your day of luxury as the train chugs back towards Paris and back to the real world. As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.
