The first part of your Versailles experience is a guided tour of the palace. During the visit, you’ll see the incredible Royal Apartments where the King and Queen — Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette — once lived and the famous Hall of Mirrors.
Then, enjoy some free time in the gardens to wander through the impeccable ‘Groves’ in summer or to bundle up for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride in winter. Admission tickets are included if you would like to visit the Gallery of Battles at your leisure.
Take a midday break for lunch at La Petite Venise, a restaurant in the gardens facing the Grand Canal.
After your meal, take a guided visit of the Trianons, the private retreat of both Louis XV and Louis XVI. Then head for the Queen’s Hamlet, Marie Antoinette’s similarly private retreat.
