What to expect

There’s a certain magic that fizzes through the air at the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Hidden away from the modern world, this majestic European castle on the outskirts of Paris is a perfectly preserved example of the reckless extravagance of the French monarchy. It really is Parisian life at its most luxurious!

This tour will allow you to step back in time and soak up the history and beauty of Versailles as you follow your expert guide from one spectacular room to the next. Marvel at its incredible array of fine art and the intricate architecture as you work your way through the highlights of the castle including the Coronation Room and the Hall of Mirrors. And just when you think that you've seen all that the Palace of Versailles has to offer, you’ll step outside and see the famous manicured gardens that surround the castle which are over 1,800 acres in size.

If you want to make your visit to Versailles extra special, book your visit on one of the days that the famous Versailles Fountain Show or Musical Gardens is running (check the dates in the When section). The Versailles Fountain Show is a wonderful musical event held in the exclusive groves, designed by André Le Nôtre. Watch fountains erupt to the sounds of a cello at the Fountain Show or just be enchanted by the simple beauty of classical music played in beautiful surroundings during the Musical Gardens event.
