  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview

    Get a glimpse of the extravagant lifestyle of the French nobility on a tour of the awe-inspiring Palace of Versailles in France.

    The Palace of Versailles draws tourists from across the world who come to explore its lavish interiors and formal gardens. The world’s most opulent Château, Versailles was in the 17th century created by Louis XIV (the Sun King) to demonstrate the absolute power of the French monarchy, then at its height.

    Louis’ passion for the arts as well as for self-glorification meant that the Palace was decorated on a scale of lavishness unprecedented in France.

    The beautiful gardens are almost as impressive as the palace itself. Designed in the formal style, they have marble and bronze statues, fountains and geometrically aligned terraces.

    An audio-guide (available in 10 languages) will explain what you are seeing as you tour the Hall of Mirrors, the Royal Opera, Marble Staircase, Mars Drawing Room, Venus and Diana Drawing Rooms, and the Royal Chapel.

    Marvel at the lavish frescoes, woodwork and marble and gilt embellishments and don’t forget to spend time in the spacious grounds filled with fountains, sculptures, and beautiful gardens.

    One of the most famous historical and architectural sights in France, the Palace of Versailles is a must visit.
