What you can expect

Board a coach from Paris and skip the line into the Palace to visit secret rooms once used by royals. Admire family portraits, personal furniture and art collections normally closed off to the public. See the Hall of Mirrors and the magnificent gardens before your return ride to Paris.

After an escorted coach ride from central Paris to Versailles, make your way into the palace without standing in line, stepping behind the ropes, passing regular public visitors, and following your guide into the Palace’s private rooms. See where kings and their queens − and mistresses − would go to escape the prying eyes of the court.

The rooms that once buzzed with the daily activity of monarchs are now frozen in time and immaculately preserved. Hear stories of scandal as you admire lavish furnishings, formal portraits and rich collections of artwork. The itinerary also includes exclusive access to either the stunning Opera House or the private Chapel, both closed to the general public.

At the end of the visit, re-emerge into the bustling public apartments through a hidden door, just as the kings and queens would have in their day. Visit the sparkling and spectacular Hall of Mirrors and the sprawling, manicured gardens before returning to Paris.
