A Royal Visit to Versailles.

Spend some time exploring this little hunting lodge, located on the outskirts of Paris, which became one of the greatest achievements in French 17th century architecture and art. The Palace of Versailles was transformed by Louis XIV to become the center of the French government and a home to reflect his glory as the Sun King. Filled with the splendors of France, surrounded by the most verdant gardens, the Chateau brings us closer to both the romance and luxury of the 18th century.

This day starts with a private tour of the Palace’s most famous and exclusive spots, including the king’s private apartments. The history of Versailles is inextricably linked with the figure of Louis XIV. Although the location existed for centuries before the sovereign. Louis XIV created a suite of rooms designed for more personal use. There he displayed his collections of artworks and paintings. Louis XV extended the apartments to the upper floors, creating work cabinets, dining rooms, libraries, scientific galleries, and laboratories.

After the visit to the palace, a stroll through the parterres and the groves admiring the fountains, vases and statues that adorn these little parks within the woods, where the kings would often go for walks. You will stroll through the majestic gardens as the aristocracy of a bygone time admiring the fountains and vistas created to inspire all those who visited.

No visit would be complete without spending some time at the Petit Trianon, the king's private chateau built for Louis XV to escape the clamour of the royal court. Louis XVI gave the Petit Trianon and its estate as a gift to his young bride Marie-Antoinette who rapidly made it her own and set about redecorating the exteriors. LouisXV's botanical gardens were soon replaced with Anglo-Oriental gardens, more in keeping with the fashion of the day.
