Full description

Discover the Palace of Versailles and its stunning gardens with a guided tour from Paris. Take the train to Versailles, and discover its history and culture. Then, explore the palace, including the Hall of Mirrors and The Abduction of Persephone statue.

Depart from Paris in the morning with your guide, and take the train to Versailles. Learn about the city that was the capital of France during several periods of the 17th, 18th, and 19th-century.

After an hour, arrive at one of the greatest symbols of Europe. Versailles stands out for its buildings and rooms as well as its astonishing gardens. The most famous part is without a doubt its sheer size, with more than 1800 hectares of grounds.

Hear the story of King Sun, of its buildings and incredible gardens, the curiosities that make Versailles unique, and the scandals that shook the monarchy and led to the French Revolution. Entangle into the stories and curiosities, and explore the chamber of the King, with its beautiful fountains and the sculpture of The Abduction of Persephone. Clarify the mystery of the diamond necklace, and find out many other important histories of the Palace.

After the guided portion of the tour, enjoy the grounds on your own and walk through the inside of the palace with an audio guide in Spanish.

Excelente tour. Empezamos a recorrer los jardines y nuestro guía Juan nos dio una muy buena explicación de la historia del palacio y los elementos de los jardines. Después continuamos con el recorrido dentro del palacio. Muy recomendable.

Time wasted due to poor communication. Once the right guide was found, the tour of the Gardens of Versailles was well worth it and guide Antonio should certainly be appreciated. The castle visit, however, was a letdown. Too many visitors in the rooms at the same time, you just had to drift with the crowd. We didn't feel safe in it and got out quickly.
