"Si Versailles m'était conté" (private tour)
Admission to the château is free for under-18s and EU citizens under 26. The price of the private tour includes adult ticket(s) (depending on the package chosen) and children's tickets.
The noble floor of the château, the royal chapel, the Grands Appartements and the famous Galerie des Glaces are just some of the wonders you'll visit on this guided tour.
The tour guide will take you through the day of a king, rythmated by the servitudes of etiquette that Louis XIV had put in place to make the nobility docile.
Versailles and its château are the undisputed symbol of the French monarchy. The King Louis XIV wished to make a place of splendor and festivities to entertain his courtiers, launched from 1668 great works to enlarge the castle built by his father Louis XIII.
The Sun King's successors continued to embellish the palace. During the French Revolution, the Château de Versailles was plundered and stripped of its paintings, furniture and knick-knacks. Versailles became a political capital from 1682 to 1789.

A big thank you to Amandine for this visit of the Palace of Versailles. Ethan, our 7 years old grandson, loved it. He discovered this magic place thanks to all the anecdotes that Amandine confided to us: Thank you.

2 children, 6 and 7 years old, delighted and captivated by our guide Cyril. 2 hours of immersion in the world of the Bourbons and after a few hours, they were able to tell almost the entire life of the kings and queens discovered during this visit! Go for it with your eyes closed, you won't be disappointed!
