What you'll do

Starting from the centre of Paris you reach the magnificent Castle of Versailles by train in 40 minutes in company of our guide who will transform the transport in a pleasant foretaste of the Sun King's legendary palace.

In Versailles you will discover the incredible history of this palace, the highlights of the building like the Gallery of Mirrors, the wall paintings by Charles Le Brun and the King's and Queen's bedrooms as well as many hidden gems and the best spots in the enormous gardens created by Louis XIV gardener André Le Nôtre.

During the walk in the amazing French park you will see great fountains, hidden private gardens with monuments and artificial caves built on the King's wishes as well as the Grand Canal, a channel created on the model of the Canal Grande in Venice. We will make coming alive the Castle as it was at its golden period in the 18th century, when balls, fireworks and intrigues gave the rhythm to the daily life in the epicentre of French power and government.

The Palace of Versailles wouldn't be empty walls with precious pieces of art and furniture for you, but the theatre of more than two centuries of history lasting from 1682 to Bastille Day in 1789.
