The Palace of Versailles was the capital of the kingdom of France for over a century from 1682 to 1789 (when the French Revolution began) and as such holds an amazing amount of history with the Royal courts of King Louis XIII, his son Louis XIV, the “Sun King”, Louis XV, and Louis XVI. The Palace was stripped of its furniture and ornaments during the French Revolution. It was abandoned until 1830 when King Louis-Philippe transformed it into a National Museum.

During your Versailles Tour, you’ll see the Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Hall of Battles. You may also have time to stroll in the gardens of Versailles.  The gardens were designed by Andre Le Notre. The classic French Garden style was perfected here.

The Great Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, and the Gallery of Battles are impressive to see.  Throughout your Versailles tour, the guide will tell you the history associated with this magical place.  You will also see some traces of Le Brun, Louis XIV’s favorite painter.  Portraits of the former residents are seen throughout the chateau.

Your Versailles tour ends with your return to your Paris hotel or apartment.
