Description
Transportation by train (RER) from Paris to Versailles Palace.

Meet at 2 Rue Des Pyramides 75001 Paris at 08:45 am and go with your guide to the train station. It takes approximately 45minutes on an RER train to travel to the Palace of Versailles.

Palace of Versailles – On arrival to the palace, explore the majesty of the Palace of Versailles and its most beautiful rooms. The palace's Baroque architecture, extravagant decorations, art work and furniture were all created by skilled craftsmen. Guide commentary will be played through individual headsets.

Covering an area of over 721000 sq. feet, the Palace of Versailles has more than 700 rooms. Your guide will take you straight inside the palace with your priority access tickets. Enjoy the beautiful rooms; the Kings and Queens Apartments, the bedroom of Marie Antoinette and the seven elegant salons – The Hercules Salon, The Abundance Salon, The Venus Salon, The Diana Salon, The Apollo Salon, The Mars Salon and The Mercury Salon, each dedicated to a different god.

Explore the Hall of Mirrors, a massive room that has a 40-foot ceiling. It is about 240 feet long and 34 feet wide. On one wall around 357 mirrors stretch from the floor to the ceiling and on the opposite wall, 17 large glass doors offer breathtaking views of Versailles' sprawling gardens. The Hall of Mirrors was designed to include three key themes – political achievements, economic achievements and artistic achievement, as directed by Louis XVI.

Palace of Versailles Gardens - After your visit to the palace, you can explore the beautiful formal gardens at your own pace. There are about 200 statues, fountains flower beds, ponds and trees.
