Seat of the power of the former French monarchy
Join me on this guided tour to discover the beautiful Château de Versailles and its gardens, one of the most famous monuments in the world and one of the most beautiful and complete creations of 17th century French art.
In this guided tour you will learn about the history of Versailles, which began as a small hunting lodge of Louis XIII, was transformed and enlarged by Louis XIV who installed there the court and the seat of the French Government.
In October 1789, the monarchy leaves Versailles, after the beginning of the French Revolution. In 1837, the king Luis Felipe inaugurates in the castle the museum consecrated to "All the glories of France".
You will explore the gardens of Versailles and admire the works of art such as statues (more than 200 statues), fountains, basins, paths and woods. Near to the great canal, we will have lunch (not included) in one of the restaurants overlooking the great canal and its fountains.
If your choice is a full day guided tour, we will then visit the secondary residences of the royal family: the Grand Trianon, palace of Louis XIV, pink marble castle surrounded by gardens and delicate basins, the Petit Trianon, domain of Queen Mary Antoinette, fairy tale scenery and the "Hameau", small rural village in the style of the Norman villages and favorite place of the queen.
