Versailles should not be missing in your trip to Paris, that's why we propose you this excursion that puts it on a platter. Departing from Paris in the morning with one of our guides, we will accompany you on the train to Versailles, which was the capital of France during various periods of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Versailles stands out both for its halls and for its impressive outdoor areas, which will be the first thing we will notice. Upon arrival, the guide will give you a historical introduction to this place and, accompanied by his explanations, you will discover its gardens: Orangerie, the Swiss pond, the Ballroom, the Latona Fountain or the Apollo Fountain, among others.

We will also stroll through its main courtyards, admire its fountains and the sculpture of “The Rape of Persephone”. There will be time to tell you about the historical events related to the palace where we will explain the history of the Sun King and the France of the XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries, the French absolutism, the march on Versailles, and the symbolic Treaty of Versailles that ended the First World War.

Once the tour of the exterior is over, you will have free time to visit the interior of the palace. We always say: Versailles is a place to visit without rushing; that's why this tour is perfect, because it allows you to visit this unique monument at your own pace.

It was Louis XIV of France, the Sun King, who ordered the construction of this palace in 1624 to demonstrate his power and wealth to whoever visited him, as well as to control everything that happened in the palace.

On the tour you can discover the more than 700 rooms it houses, highlighting rooms like the Royal Chapel or the Hall of Mirrors, built to show the power of the French nation to the world.

Strolling through its gardens and courtyards listening to the stories of kings, queens and symbols of 17th and 18th century France is a unique experience. Discover it with us, complete it at your own pace and come back to Paris whenever you feel like it, the return is free! Plan ahead and reserve your place to discover Versailles!

Frequently Asked Questions

¿Se pueden comprar los billetes de tren con anterioridad?

Los billetes del RER tiene validez diaria, por lo que recomendamos llegar al punto de encuentro con 20 minutos de antelación para comprarlos en la taquilla el día de la excursión.

¿Se hace una visita guiada por el interior del palacio?

Se hace sólo por los jardines; después podéis descubrir el palacio a vuestro ritmo. Si os interesa hacerlo con una audioguía, podéis descargarla de manera gratuita en la aplicación oficial del Palacio de Versalles.

¿Cómo vuelvo a París?

La vuelta es libre, por lo que puedes volver cuando te apetezca. Si tienes dudas, pregúntale al guía el día de la excursión y este te dará toda la información necesaria.

You will find our guides to the exit of the metro (lines 8 and 13). For you to better localise we tell you there is a food stand to the exit of the metro. (We remember you that in the station there are two exits: the one of RER and the one of metro. The METRO is the correct one).
