Palace of Versailles

Stretching for more than 721,000 square feet, the Palace of Versailles consists of over 700 rooms. Your audio guide will help you find your way during your visit, tell you about the history of the palace, and immerse you in its special atmosphere. Visit the palace's most beautiful rooms: the King's Grand Apartment, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.), and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Queen Marie Antoinette.  Spend time marveling at the spectacular Hall of Mirrors, a unique room in which guests were received and impressed, designed by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet long, it was designed to astonish the Sun King's (Louis XIV) visitors and is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's beautiful gardens.

In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned the gardener André Le Nôtre to lay out the grounds and gardens, something that was just as important as the construction of the palace itself as far as the king was concerned. Spend time exploring the Palace of Versailles gardens and admire the many artworks they contain (more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds, and woodland. During the Summer months, a range of activities is organized, such as the "Grandes Eaux,” when the many fountains are made to dance to music.

It was great. Meeting new people and just being able to visit the place at your own place is awesome i would definitely recommend it. Only trouble i have had is that the guide who had to take us to the coach told us to meet her in front of the castle at 14.30 and i did, looked around in the heavy rain, but no one was there. Since it was already 10 mins i decided to go back to the coach by myself and there she was with other people, while some of us was still there looking for her.
