Description

Start your half-day audio-guided tour with a short drive from Paris to the grandiose Palace of Versailles, while listening to narration about the colourful history of the royalty and their famous Chateau. Priority access is guaranteed with your entrance ticket to palace of Versailles. At the courtyard, you will see golden gates of one of the most elaborately styled royal residences of the world.


The gates flaunt the sun-emblem of Louis XIV, who was also referred to as the Sun King. With your Palace of Versailles tickets, you can visit the opulent interiors. Your audio guide will provide commentary as you walk through the State Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and the Queen's and King's Private Apartment. One of the things to do in Versailles is to stroll around the expansive landscaped gardens, where you can marvel at the endless shady tree avenues, many ornamental basins, decorative fountains and marble sculptures. The Gardens are spread over 800 hectares of land, mostly in the classic French formal garden style. Think of the times when huge parties were held in these gardens, with nobles in their velvet costumes and ladies in their ball gowns.


The gardens feature over 200 statues besides beautifully laid out flower beds, and expansive woodland that stretches for miles all around. If you make a trip to Versailles in the summer season, you may be able to witness the Grandes Eaux Musicales, a show where fountains dance to music. UNESCO has designated the palace and its gardens a World Heritage site. The Palace of Versailles tour is one of the most popular things to Paris. You can opt to have lunch at the La Petite Venise restaurant, located on the grounds of the Palace.
