Description

Discover the secrets of Versailles Palace on this day trip from Paris. Travel by train and enjoy pre-booked entrance tickets that guarantee you direct access. Take a guided tour to uncover all that this stately palace has to offer.  Meet your guide in downtown Paris and relax on the ride to Versailles aboard a local train. Once you reach the Chateau, begin your trip through time as you gain a vivid understanding of the royal personalities who inhabited the site.  Find out how Versailles was the most splendid capital in the world during the 17th century reign of Louis XIV. Hear about how the royal family was continuously on display, how they subjugated the proud nobles, and recaptured preeminence in fashion and art.  Listen to astonishing anecdotes about the lavish lifestyle of Marie Antoinette and understand how uncomfortable she was at this public palace, preferring her private domains. Upon completing your tour of the royal apartments go to the luxurious gardens. Admire this lush area that was the setting for promenades, performances, and pyrotechnics. On days when the fountains are active, appreciate the elegant and omnipresent bubbling jets of water. Work up a an appetite and take a break for lunch. Go on an afternoon excursion to the queen’s personal domain. During this three-hour tour you’ll visit the Petit Trianon, an exquisite private palace set in a luxuriant garden where Marie Antoinette spent much of her time.  Wander through the queen’s Normandy village, featuring a vineyard, a dairy, and a vegetable farm, which was arranged for her to simulate the healthy simplicity of country life. Reduce the walking distance on the tour by taking the 'Petit Train' from the Palace to and from the Petit Trianon. After your tour it's a short walk to the train station where you'll catch the direct train back to Paris. Choose to add on a gourmet 3 course lunch with wine in the restaurant in the Palace run by Chef Ducasse. Return to Paris by train at th end of your day trip.
