What to Expect
Skip the line for speedy entrance to the immensely popular Palace of Versailles for a guided half-day tour from Paris. Located on the outskirts of the French capital, this dazzling royal residence is the largest and most luxurious palace ever built by a reigning monarch – and a perfectly preserved example of the reckless extravagance of the French monarchy.
You will head to Versailles in a comfortable minibus, departing from the Eiffel Tower. On arrival at Versailles, venture inside the palace and revel in the decadence of Parisian royalty as you discover a fantasy of mirrors, marble, and gold. Your expert guide will bring French history back to life as they reveal stories of the shamelessly self-indulgent kings, queens and consorts of 17th and 18th Century France.
Spend an hour viewing many highlights of the palace, including the Royal Chapel, the King’s and Queen’s Grand Apartments, and the palace's awe-inspiring crown jewel, the Hall of Mirrors. After experiencing the grandeur of the interior, enjoy free time to stroll through the lush, manicured Versailles Gardens, filled with beautiful statues and ornate fountains.
