What to Expect
There were reasons behind the French Revolution of the 18th century. The Palace of Versailles was one of them. Built at a time when the people were starving, Versailles epitomizes the extravagance of Louis XIV. Rooms were covered with gold leaf, furniture quilted in the finest velvet and clothes crafted from only the best silk and handmade lace. Join the Versailles tours from Paris to explore the excesses that sparked a revolution and left Marie Antoinette behind bars. You’ll learn all about the history of this incredible palace, and be led you through vast corridors and ballrooms to explore the best areas of the Palace – such as the Hall of Mirrors, the King and Queen’s bedrooms and the incredible lounges, filled with stunning artworks, chandeliers and ornate furniture.

You’ll also have some time to enjoy the outdoors with one hour of free time to explore the Gardens of Versailles. Covering 1,800 acres, these manicured grounds are the crown jewels of Versailles. Depending on the day and scheduling, the Versailles tours from Paris include the Musical Fountains Show. For the Musical Fountains Show your guide will lead you on a route of its water features timed perfectly to the notes of classical music played over hidden speakers. 

A return transfer from Paris to Versailles is available on an air-conditioned coach, with tours that cut out all the hassle of finding your own way. There is a small group sizes of only 25 people or fewer meaning that the Versailles tours are intimate. Your expert, English-speaking guide leads you around our carefully-planned route, telling you the stories and anecdotes that bring the Palace of Versailles to life.
