What to expect

Our tour will take you to various part of the palace to experiment a day in the very lavish life of a member of the court. You will see more gold in a day than you saw in your entire life, you will learn how the people lived in the city/palace, what they ate, how they partied and because a palace tour wouldn't be complete without a bit of gossip: who they loved.

The tour starts at 1:45 pm in front of Louis the XIVth equestrian sculpture (Place d'Armes). We will start by visiting the apartments of the King. You will learn more about the life of three of the most famous residents of the Palace: Louis the XIVth Louis the XVth and Marie Antoinette. You will learn how they transformed the image of France abroad, how they started trends and how they ruled.

Because a visit to Versailles wouldn't be complete without the "plat de resistance" a walk in the extraordinary gardens of the palace. The gardens are full of hidden messages from Louis the XIVth to the court, we will try to find them all by diving in Greek and Roman mythology.

If the weather is good we will visit the gardens on foot to make the most of the gardens. If the rain makes walking a bit tricky we will take the petit train instead to reach the Domain of Marie-Antoinette where we will visit the Trianon and her farm. Our tour will end there.
