Palace of Versaille

Palace of Versaille


From 1661, the palace that was to become the most magnificent residences of all the courts of Europe with world famous architects and decorators such as Le Vau, Mansart, garden designer Andre Le Notre, garden sculptures (statues, busts, marble vases) initially supervised by Charles Le Brun, the King’s leading painter. From 1682, Louis XIV officially installed the court and government of the Kingdom.

After lunch on a full day tour we devote the afternoon to the Palaces and estates where Marie Antoinette spent most of her time. You will see The Grand Canal, which was the setting for many boating parties, and visit the Grand Trianon a marble palace where Louis XV and Louis XVI liked to work and retire from court life.

You will then take a glimpse into the royal pleasures of simple, rural pursuits, away from the pomp of court ,in the Petit Trianon and finally the Queen's Hamlet, a Norman-style thatched cottage built for Mairie Antoinette, where from 1783 she played the role in her own private theatre as a shepherdess.
