This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

A breathtaking product of 17th-century France, the Palace of Versailles sits on top of the château, hunting lodge and original hunting grounds of King Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV eventually took over and commissioned the building of what the world now knows as the Palace of Versailles. Louis XIV even destroyed the nearby village for the expansion of the Château de Versailles. Containing over 2,000 rooms and 2,000 windows, the Palace of Versailles is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The Hall of Mirrors, Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Measuring almost 70 yards long and adorned with 357 mirrors, the Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the palace. The mirrors in this room were designed to reflect light and protect the walls from smoke. Only a few candles were required in order to reflect candlelight throughout the entire room. The Treaty of Versailles, which marked the end of World War I, was signed in the Hall of Mirrors on June 28th, 1919.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

After touring the palace, you’ll experience the spellbinding Gardens of Versailles. Inspiring gardens all over the world, the meticulously-manicured Gardens of Versailles occupy a total area of almost 2,000 acres. Thousands of trees were transported from all over France by entire regiments of the French army to create these gardens. The gardens contain over 400 sculptures and 1,400 fountains.
