The Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage site, was the residence of Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI from 1682 to the French Revolution in 1789. Your commentary on your audio guide will give you the ideal chance to visit Versailles’ magnificent Palace at your own speed. Admire its baroque architecture, sumptuous decoration, artworks, and furniture produced by some of the biggest artisans of history. Enjoy a walk through the gardens of the palace after your trip.
The Palace extends over 721,000 square feet and consists of more than 700 chambers. During your tour, your audio guide will assist you to discover your way and inform you about the palace’s history. Visit the most lovely rooms in the palace, such as the King’s Grand Apartment, each with seven lounges devoted to a distinct god, and the Queen’s Grand Apartment, set in a mirror image of the King’s chambers, including the Coronation Room and the Queen’s Bedroom, once occupied by Queen Marie Antoinette.
Spend time in the spectacular Hall of Mirrors, a unique room where the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart welcomed and impressed guests. It was intended to amaze tourists of the Sun King (Louis XIV) nearly 240 feet long.
In 1661, as far as the king was concerned, Louis XIV ordered the gardener Andre Le Notre to lay out the grounds and gardens, which was just as essential as building the palace itself. Explore the gardens of the Palace and admire the many artworks (more than 200 sculptures), fountains, lakes, flower beds, and forests.
A range of activities is organized during the summer months, such as the “Grandes Eaux,” when the many fountains dance to music. Individual earphones are available inside the palace for recorded commentary in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Korean, Polish, and Mandarin Chinese.
