What to expect
Meet your driver-guide in Le Havre, and enjoy comfortable transportation to the Palace of Versailles, one of the finest architectural treasures of France.
During your 2-hour trip to Versailles, your passionate guide will recap the background of the construction of Versailles, from a simple hunting manor to the largest castle ever built.
Then once you arrive at the Palace of Versailles, you will venture to the Grand Apartments where you will learn about the lives of Louis XIII, XIV, XV, and XVI until the tragedy of the Revolution in October 6, 1789, when the royal family had to leave forever. After a complete visit, you will have lunch at Café Angelina, one of the best cafés in France.
After lunch, the visit will continue to the Grand Trianon, the escape residence of Louis, the Petit Trianon, the gift of Louis XV to the Pompadour, and finally with the Hamlet of the Queens where Marie Antoinette liked to spend time. To finish this visit, you will also discover the carriage gallery. These royal carriages were real signs of ancient status for the king and the royal family.
When your palace and gardens tour will come to an end, return in comfort to your Le Havre accommodation to conclude your 11-hour tour.
