Palace of Versailles Tour

When making your reservation, you'll have the choice of two tour options. They both begin from the following meeting point in Versailles: the Louis XIV equestrian statue, in Place d'Armes.

Guided Tour

Enjoy a two-hour guided tour of the Palace of Versailles and discover the secrets of this jewel of Classical French Baroque architecture, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. First, we'll enter the Royal Apartments, lavishly decorated to the refined tastes of Louis XIV. Tapestries, paintings, colourful curtains, delicate ornaments... you'll be captivated by the exquisite decor.

We'll then continue to the sumptuous Hall of Mirrors. This extravagant gallery is one of the most emblematic rooms of the Palace of Versailles, characterised by its intricate lamps and sculptures and impressive frescoes by Charles Le Brun, as well as its namesake mirrors. Our guide will tell us about the history of the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed here, ending the First World War in 1919.

After the two-hour guided tour, we'll then give you tickets for you to visit on your own the other royal residences: the Grand Trianon and the Petit Trianon, the private estate of Marie Antoinette and home to a model village created by her known as the Queen's Hamlet. You can also visit the spectacular gardens of the Palace of Versailles and their ornate fountains at your leisure.

Audio-guided Tour

If you choose this option, you'll discover the secrets of the Palace of Versailles thanks to an English-language audio guide and explore the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon, the Queen's Hamlet and the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles at your own pace.

Important to note

Regardless of the option selected, you must remember that once you exit the gardens you cannot access the palace again.
