  • Description

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.

        It was fall and the weather was less than great so the 1/2 day tour of the Palace was perfect and the tech used on the audio portion worked very well.
        The tour guide should carry a flag( Pariscityvision sign), so she /he can easily be spotted in the crowd of tpurists
        My fiancé and I bought a half day one & it's only 2 hours, so If you want to see the gardens.. go with full day! But the palace is amazing !!
