palace of versailles paris tickets tours and attractions

Visit the iconic Palace of Versailles (Chateau de Versailles) and it’s phenomenal gardens.

As the center of the French court, Versailles was one of the grandest theatres of European absolutism. Under the guidance of Louis XIV (reigned 1643–1715), the residence was transformed into an immense and extravagant complex surrounded by stylized French and English gardens. Every detail of its construction was intended to glorify the king. The additions were designed by such renowned architects as Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Robert de Cotte, and Louis Le Vau and Charles Le Brun oversaw the interior decoration. Landscape artist André Le Nôtre created symmetrical French gardens that included ornate fountains with “magically” still water, expressing the power of humanity and, specifically, the king over nature. Experience the opulence of the Palace and Gardens of Versailles on an excursion from Paris. Work your way through the palace’s highlights, including the king’s and queen’s apartments, the chapel, the Coronation Room, the Hall of Mirrors, and the Salon of Abundance. Head out into the sunlight and visit the manicured gardens, covering an area of 1,800 acres. Marvel at the spectacular interior of the palace and the manicured gardens surrounding it. See the Fountain Show or Musical Gardens.
