Make your way to a central Paris meet-up point that's located on a metro line, and then board a climate-controlled coach headed to the Palace of Versailles.
As you enjoy views of the Parisian suburbs that surround Versailles, listen to a pre-recorded audio guide to learn a bit about life in the Versailles court and about the flamboyant reign of Louis 14th, the French "Sun King" who established the palace.
Upon arrival at Versailles, you have time to explore the sprawling property on your own: walk the manicured gardens, peek into the king’s own apartments, and tour the palace itself. See designs by Le Notre, Mansart, and Le Vau. Your audio guide provides background info on each area. Following your time at Versailles, meet back up at the coach for the return trip to Paris, where this tour concludes.
