Explore beyond appearances on a tour of the Palace of Versailles that allows you unprecedented access to the world’s most famous royal residence. Open secret doors to rooms most others never see and trace the footsteps of history’s most romanticized queen, Marie Antoinette, on this full day tour from Paris.

Learn about regal life during the reigns of Louis XIV, XV and XVI and step into the staterooms where kings and queens held court, including the spectacular Hall of Mirrors, before taking a step behind the scenes to exclusive areas where history was actually written. You’ll discover a world of influential mistresses, royal children, ambitious nobles and jealous courtiers. You’ll navigate through some of the 2,300 rooms in this glorious palace and through doors that normally remain under lock and key.

The extraordinary life of Marie Antoinette will be brought to life as you discover the real person behind such a famous and documented character. Explore the tranquil gardens as you explore her retreat in the palace grounds, where she lived a simple country life, away from the public eye. And step through the secret corridors behind her bedroom where Marie Antoinette fled from the revolutionaries who finally stormed the palace and put an end to the extravagant court of Versailles and, indeed, the French royal family themselves.

You also have time to have lunch at your leisure.
