Stop At: Jardins du Chateau de Versailles, Place d'Armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

In 1661 Louis XIV entrusted André Le Nôtre with the creation and renovation of the gardens of Versailles, which he considered just as important as the Palace. Work on the gardens was started at the same time as the work on the palace and lasted for 40 or so years. During this time André Le Nôtre collaborated with the likes of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Superintendant of Buildings to the King from 1664 to 1683, who managed the project, and Charles Le Brun, who was made First Painter to the King in January 1664 and provided the drawings for a large number of the statues and fountains.

Duration: 15 minutes

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

The Palace of Versailles has been listed as a World Heritage Site for 30 years and is one of the greatest achievements in French 17th century art. Louis XIII's old hunting pavilion was transformed and extended by his son, Louis XIV, when he installed the Court and government there in 1682. A succession of kings continued to embellish the Palace up until the French Revolution.

I was with a private tour so had our own tour guide through the palace. I loved hearing the story from her point of view. She made us feel comfortable, looked after and ensured everyone had a great experience. Versailles is amazing and definitely worth the time.
