If you want to visit Versailles in total freedom, take this excursion to discover the Palace and the Gardens with comments from an audio-guide.
You can find our PARISCityVISION chaperone at the 9 rue Colbert 78 000 Versailles. He will give you your audioguide, that you can use only in the Palace and will guide you directly inside the Palace.
Once inside, you can freely visit the King's state apartments. The remarks spoken in the language of your choice will allow you to discover the history of the kings of France (Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI) that lived in the palace. Go through the various rooms and immerse yourself in royal life while you contemplate the rooms superbly decorating by the theme of a god and furnished with period furniture. Admire the baroque architecture and follow the path indicated by your audio-guide while you take in the place. You will arrive in the majestic Hall of Mirrors the once served as a reception hall and hosted great ceremonies such as princely weddings. You will be thrilled with its size and the light from the big windows that look out onto the garden.
You can continue your visit in the garden's alleyways. Designed by architect André Le Nôtre, you will marvel at the beauty of this garden that is the perfect example of French gardens. Wander the paths and admire the flowerbeds and magnificent statue-topped fountains. If you take the excursion on the day of the "Grandes Eaux Musicales," you can watch this extraordinary fountain spectacle set to baroque music.
Enjoy the restaurants located in the gardens, like "Petite Venise" set near the Grand Canal, for a lunch break or a stop.
