Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

The Palace of Versailles in true royal fashion. As your guide shows you around a carefully curated selection of the palace’s 700 rooms, you’ll hear stories of the Sun King, Louis XIV, his successors, their queens, mistresses, and courtiers – including Marie Antoinette and other notable figures. Versailles had its heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries, when the Sun King elevated Louis XIII’s humble hunting lodge into the official seat of the French court – and 300 years later, the palace has lost little of its glamorous excess.

Duration: 2 hours

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

Visit the breathtaking Hall of Mirrors inside Versailles while our passionate English-speaking guide marvels you with stories of the excesses of royal life, peaking under the Sun King, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: The Royal Chapel, Inside the Chateau Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Visit the opulent Royal Chapel during your tour of the Palace of Versailles.

Duration: 5 minutes

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

The Gardens of the Palace of Versailles were designed by master gardener André Le Nôtre and court painter Charles le Brun, not as a respite from the palace, but as an extension of it – with every bit as much opulence (and intrigue) as the interior. Depending on the day, your tour of the Gardens may include the Musical Fountain Show (where fountains dance in perfect time to classical music) or Musical Gardens (where music accompanies your tour through the idyllic glades).

Duration: 30 minutes

I am very dissatisfied with La Vacanza Travel for my experience. I notified customer service prior to pickup that I was having route issues with my taxi to the departure point. There was no help whatsoever which is frustrating and there was no offer to come to the palace another date since I could not make the pickup point on time. I was charged for a service I couldn’t even enjoy.

Not doing that. Not saying more. Why are you making type at least 100 words. Both vendors told me personally they would refund my money and La Vacanza Travel then says no. I’m paying 1000s of dollars that I don’t have for accommodations bc my daughter lost her passport, I asked vendors for a refund. Vendors said yes and La Vacanza Travel said no.
