Soak up French culture and history with a guided tour of the 17th-century Palace of Versailles, a World Heritage Site. Don't miss the exquisite manicured gardens, considered as works of art themselves.
Louis XIV, known as the Sun King, officially settled his government in here in 1682. Venture inside the palace and discover a fantasy of gold, mirrors, and marble. Your guide conjures up life in the palace; relating its history and inhabitants. Visit the Grand Royal Apartment, the Hall of Mirrors, and the Queen's private apartments. Then stroll among the gardens' sculptures, statues, busts, and marble vases–all made from 1661 onwards by teams of sculptors led by the king's favourite painter, Charles Le Brun.
