Explore the exclusive apartment of King Louis XIV, and learn about the notorious Dieudonné family as you wander through the Grand Appartement du Roi. Lose yourself in the magical Hall of Mirrors, adorned with huge crystal chandeliers, bronze gilded archways, and more than 350 ornate mirrors. This magnificent 17th-century gallery tells the story of Louis XIV’s rise to greatness, as depicted in a series of hand-painted ceiling murals.

As you make your way to the Domaine de Marie Antoinette, stroll through the Queen’s own botanical gardens, where she sought sanctuary amid the manicured lawns and ornate fountains (weather depending). Discover the collection of ornate fountains, trickling amid vast landscaped lawns. Discover what life in the Royal Court was really like, as your guide leads you through the sometimes tumultuous history of the estate. Experience a series of stunning fountain shows as you explore the grounds.

Retreat After you have explored the gardens, you will head inside the Petit Trianon, where the legendary Marie Antoinette once lived. Discover the iconic Queen’s hidden sanctuary, and learn about her extraordinary life as you wander through the grounds. Here you will have the chance to see the rooms and cottages which once played host to lavish Royal parties, and learn about the scandalous exploits of the Royal Court.  Spend the afternoon exploring the intimate Hamlet, as you wander through the reconstructed farm, restored windmill, and authentic Neo-classical cottages.

Your guide will escort you back to the entrance of Château de Versailles or, if you came by transfer from Paris, your guide leave you at the parking of the Domaine de Marie Antoinette.
