Later, you can take a relaxing stroll through the majestic French-style gardens designed by André le Nôtre with its mesmerizing fountains. For instance, on fountain show days you will discover the superb waterworks, still running today as they did in the times of Kings and Queens. Afterwards, savor a lunch in the “La Flotille”, a restaurant located at the foot of the Grand Canal, a charming setting that allows you to appreciate the beauty of the estate.

 

Then, within the grounds of Versailles, your guide will take you to the Grand Trianon, a beautiful marble palace with an interesting history, and to the Petit Trianon, a small chateau used by Marie Antoinette for festivities and as an escape of the overwhelming court etiquette. Also, discover the Queen’s Hamlet, a stylized Norman village and farm built for Marie Antoinette where she retreated with her closest friends to enjoy an intimately rustic life. Completed just a few years before the Revolution, Hamlet remains a testament to the Queen’s desire for a simpler life over the cold marble vaults of the main palace.

 

By the end, you will be back after this Versailles full-day private tour to your hotel accommodation.
