Visit the National Estate of Versailles: The Palace, Gardens and Trianons from Paris

  • Description

One-day tour to discover on your own the National Estate of the Palace of Versailles. From the royal palace to the Trianons and to the Queen’s Hamlet, walking through the fabulous park, the history of the kings of France will have no secrets for you.

You should arrive at our PARISCityVISION Louvre agency at 7:45am to leave at 8.15am towards Versailles with a tour escort aboard who will give you the passport for full access to the whole estate. Once you are in Versailles, you can choose to start your visit wherever you’d like. The passport will allow you to go wherever you want but it does not give priority access to the Palace of Versailles. The map provided with the passport will help you find your way around the estate and lose nothing of all that is worth visiting.

You will dive into the heart of the History of France and discover the life led by the reigning monarch at Versailles. You will cross the King’s main state apartments, each room bearing the name of a god. You will see the Queen’s apartments that were recently restored and that were mainly occupied by Marie-Antoinette. You will be amazed by the works of art, the period furniture and the wealth of the Palace. Don’t miss the majestic Hall of Mirrors that offers a splendid view over the gardens. Its decoration helps you imagine the receptions that the Queen could have organized in this incredible place.

You can have a break for lunch in the wonderful French-style gardens, either having a picnic in one of the authorized places or sitting in one of the restaurants located within the National Estate of Versailles. Then you will admire the groves and flowerbeds decorated with a wide variety of flowers, you will walk through the groves, stop in front of the wonderful fountains and walk along the canal until Marie-Antoinette estate. You will discover this place where the queen used to retreat and liked to live in a farmer style. She also used to welcome her hosts there.

Then you can continue your walk visiting the Petit and Grand Trianon, the two buildings hidden at the end of the Palace gardens. While the Grand Trianon was considered as Louis XIV’s residence, the Petit Trianon was dedicated to Marie-Antoinette.
