The city, park and chateaux of Versailles stretch for a meticulously crafted
nine miles-one of the World's most outstanding examples of town planning.
It became, even before its completion, the model for royal residences,
copied by kings and princes for centuries.
The palace contains some of the most sumptuous interiors in the world: the
royal apartments with the King's bedroom that marked the center of the
chateau and the kingdom; Marie Antoinette's boudoir that appears as it did
when she left on a journey that ended at the guillotine; and the Hall of
Mirrors whose magnificence changes with every hour of the day. Priceless
furnishings like Louis XV's desk, intricate clocks and the royal library
make you feel that you have truly stepped back in time.
Our tour also takes you to the Royal chapel and opera house, the Petit and
the Grand Trianon (the rufuge of both Louis XIV and Napoleon), through that
park with its lakes, ponds, Grand Canal and sparkling fountains.
