Travel back in time and enter the opulent palace of French royalty in the halls of Versailles. This half-day your includes an exclusive look inside secret rooms not normally open to the general public. A guide will meet you in Paris to escort you on the swift train ride to Versailles. Upon arrival, an expert local guide will fast track you past the long lines in a privileged group of no more than 20 people.
Head for the king’s private apartments, and discover where Louis XV and XVI and their queens (and mistresses) would escape from the prying eyes of the Court of Versailles. In the days of the French Court, these private apartments could only be entered by permission of the king, and courtiers would do almost anything for an invite!
Get insights into the lives of the French monarchy, learning how the King would go to bed in public, before retiring to his private apartments to sleep, making sure to return to the public bedroom before sunrise! With restricted access, the apartments are as lavishly furnished as they were in the days of the Court. Admire family portraits, personal furniture, and art collections.
The itinerary is adapted depending on which areas can be opened, but includes either the Opera House or Royal Chapel. Reappear through a hidden door into the public apartments, just as the kings and queens would have. Marvel at the main apartments, including the spectacular Hall of Mirrors. Then, stroll in the magnificent gardens to see the fountains, statues, and more.
A return train ticket is included for you to return to Paris at your leisure.
