Versailles is a striking example of the grandeur of classical French architecture. The extravagant French decoration reflects the personality and wealth of King Louis IV and the Royal Apartments are littered with priceless paintings and furniture.

Your guided tour will take you through the Great Royal Apartments, the Queen’s Apartments and the stunning Hall of Mirrors with your guide bringing the palace’s history to life with their enthusiasm and knowledge.

At the end of your guided tour, take advantage of your free time to explore the beautiful French gardens – which are worth a visit to Versailles just on their own.

Fountain Display
