Description

Palace of Versailles:

Start off with a visit of the fabulous Palace of Versailles that will take you back to the opulence of the French court under the Sun King, Louis the XIV and his successors. Learn about the history of this monument from your expert guide, such as how it played a major role in the French Revolution of the 18th century. Built at a time when the people were starving, Versailles' extravagance left the King and Queen behind bars.

Explore the best areas of the Palace, such as the Hall of Mirrors and the King and Queen's bedrooms, and indulge in the beauty and excess of the rooms, covered with gold leaf and filled with stunning artworks, luxurious chandeliers and ornate furniture.

Also enjoy some free time to explore the immense Gardens of Versailles, designed by André Le Nôtre. Covering 1,800 acres, these manicured grounds are the crown jewels of the castle, with grandiose fountains, stunning groves and rolling lawns.

Depending on the day and scheduling, this tour includes:

  • The Musical Fountains Show: enjoy its water features timed perfectly to the notes of classical music played over hidden speakers.

  • OR the Musical Gardens: hear delightful music while discovering some of the most idyllic spots of the Gardens.

Enjoy some free time for lunch on your return to Paris before your afternoon tour.

Louvre Museum:

Time to visit the world's largest museum - the Louvre, featuring a pretigious collection of 380,000 objects and 35,000 artworks.

While other guests wait in lines, walk straight into this incredibly beautiful building and enjoy the top must-see masterpieces that were selected just for you. Let your guide escort you from one room to the next and see the best the Louvre has to offer on this semi-private guided tour!

In just one and a half hour, you will get to see, among others, the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo, while your guide tells you interesting and entertaining facts about each.

The rich historical stories you will hear will bring the art to life like you've never experienced before.
