Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

You will be transported back to the Golden Age of France with a trip to the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
and emblem of French royalty and extravagance. You will be guaranteed fast-track entry, allowing you to jump the queue and travel in comfort on one of our fully air-conditioned coaches. You will marvel at the breathtaking royal chateau, transformed by the
‘Sun King’ Louis XIV in the 1660s from a hunting lodge. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the center of royal and political power until the French Revolution in 1789 which saw Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette forced to return to the capital.

Stop At: The Royal Chapel, Inside the Chateau Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Your audio guide will enable you to discover the State apartments of the King and Queen & the Royal Chapel among others.

Stop At: The Hall of Mirrors, Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Discover the Hall of Mirrors, the epitome of French opulence: three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors line the gold-adorned hall and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

Stop At: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

You will also be given time to explore the manicured gardens "à la française", which mirrors the splendor of the interior.
Designed by the French landscaper André Le Nôtre in 1661 for the King Louis XIV, the 2, 000-acre park is an architectural expanse of perspectives, parterres, fountains and groves that since its inception has defined what a French garden should be.
