What to Expect
After meeting your guide you’ll skip the lines to enter the Palace of Versailles and begin a 90-minute guided tour of the largest palace in Europe.
Learn about the history of this former residence of monarchs built by the Sun King, Louis XIV. You’ll take in the opulence and abundance in which the kings of France lived up until the French Revolution.
Visit the Hercules Room, where you’ll marvel at the spectacular painted ceiling that’s comparable to the Sistine Chapel. See the Royal Chapel where 14-year-old Marie Antoinette married the future King Louis XVI, and continue on to the Abundance Room that has been recently renovated.
The tour also includes the Venus Salon, the Diana Room, Mars Room, Mercury Room, the War Room, and the iconic Hall of the Mirrors where the treaty of Versailles was signed, ending WWI.
Visit the King's Bedroom and then the Queen's Bedroom, where your guide will show you the secret door that saved the life of Marie Antoinette in October 1789.
