Versailles Palace Tour

85€ per person

Indulge in the beauty and excess of the French monarchy’s most extravagant palace. Counting some 700 rooms and 2,000 acres of gardens, this dazzling chateau still evokes the same sense of awe that it did over 300 years ago when it reached its apex under the Sun King, Louis XIV. Our Versailles tours from Paris cover the top sights at this famed UNESCO World Heritage Site on a 4 hour visit, including the Grand Apartments, State Rooms and Hall of Mirrors, as well as parts of the Gardens of Versailles.

Your Paris By Foot guide will personally escort you to Versailles by train (tickets included) where you will head straight past the long lines to enter the palace. Be mesmerized by its spectacular adornment as you enjoy captivating stories on its history and inhabitants including Louis XIV, XV, and XVI, their queens, and mistresses. Walk in the footsteps of Marie Antoinette and other historical figures to discover the moments that defined their lives, spanning the ‘golden age’ from the rise of France as one of Europe’s most influential powers to the dramatic events of the French Revolution.

Considered among the highest achievements of 17th and 18th century art and architecture, this palace par excellence started with humbler beginnings as Louis XIII’s hunting lodge in the early 1600s. Over the century that followed it became an extravagant show of power as the court’s official seat from 1682 to 1789.
