Summary of The Day: Have you ever wondered what it felt like to live in the Palace of Versailles? On this VIP tour you can explore the hidden rooms behind locked doors and walk in the footsteps of Marie Antoinette, one of the most idolized (and despised) queens in the history of the French royalty. Spend a day in the magnificent Palace of Versailles. Your English-speaking guide and palace expert will bring to life stories of lavish courts under French kings, queens and mistresses. Gain access to secret rooms and corridors that most never see. Explore rooms opened for your eyes only on a one-of-a-kind tour designed by our very own team of Palace of Versailles experts.
On this full-day excursion from Paris you will follow the lives and destinies of the French royal family - namely Marie Antoinette - and learn about life at the Court of Versailles under Louis XIV, XV and XVI. See the rooms where these kings and queens held court, including the spectacular Hall of Mirrors. Then go behind the scenes with exclusive access to rarely seen areas including the private quarters of influential mistresses, royal children, ambitious nobles and jealous courtiers - a sneak peek available to only a select few. The secret rooms of Versailles are where the pages of history were actually written.
Learn about Marie Antoinette and how she eventually retreated from the public gaze to live a simple country life at Queen's Hamlet. We'll guide you through the Gardens of Petit Trianon so that you can better appreciate the beauty of her secluded paradise, worlds away from the intrigue and feuding at the palace. See the secret corridors behind her bedroom where she fled from the revolutionaries who stormed the palace and put an end to the French monarchy once and for all.
