Highlights
  • Plug into a fascinating tour of King Louis XIV's magnificent royal residence, with over 700 Baroque rooms filled with rare treasures and priceless Renaissance art
  • Check your hair in the iconic Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), and see where the treaty of Versailles was signed in this UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Explore 250 acres of stunning gardens, packed with marble statues, hidden grottos, and world-famous landscape design
Description

Give yourself the royal treatment with a detailed audio tour of Louis XIV's jaw-dropping palace. Walk among the jewel-encrusted sights, learn the history of the Hall of Mirrors, and browse the collection of 18th-century art. Afterwards, step outside to explore 250 beautiful acres of statues, water features, and rare plants.

Plug into a knowledgeable source and make a world of difference to your Versailles visit.

It's safe to say that 'Sun King' Louis XIV gave his father's humble hunting lodge a rather extravagant makeover. Today, 400 years later, it showcases the sheer wealth and power of the French monarchy thanks to countless Renaissance artworks, lavish Baroque architecture, and majestic gardens.

Your audio guide will showcase the absolute best of the world's largest royal domain, and teach you all about its history and inhabitants. Better still, unlike with a regular guide, you can pause and rewind if you miss something!

No complaints it was very fast to get in. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because it was not strongly emphasized that the tour office is not at the palace it is down the street. Other then that everything was wonderful.
