Route: Paris - Versailles - Paris
Duration: 5 h
The Palace of Versailles will you be amazed by the sumptuous decor of the building and you will plunge into the heart of the Royal History of France. The Palace of Versailles was the residence of French Kings Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI and their courts from 1682 until the French Revolution in 1789. Discover the splendor of the Palace of Versailles, a symbol of royal power. Its sumptuous decoration, Baroque architecture, many works of art, and furniture were all created by the greatest craftsmen of the day. Stretching for more than 721,000 square feet, the Palace of Versailles has over 700 rooms. During tour you will see most beautiful rooms: the King's Grand Apartments, with seven rooms each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.), and the Queen's Grand Apartments, mirroring those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette.  Also, marvel at the majestic "Hall of Mirrors" Versailles, a large reception room in which to see and be seen, dreamt up by the famous architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was created to astonish visitors to the Sun King, Louis XIV; it is lit by 17 windows and some 350 mirrors, and overlooks the palace's breath-taking gardens, the second part of your visit. In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned the landscape architect André Le Nôtre to lay out the gardens and grounds, something that was just as important to the king as the construction of the palace. Spend time exploring the Gardens of Versailles and admire the 386 works of art (including more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds, and woodland. After we will return to Paris.
