Overview

The tour to Versailles is quite pleasant, it seems to me that there is never a bad time to travel by train, even more so when you are heading to one of the most impressive places in Europe.

During the train ride you will be able to appreciate the outskirts of Paris while learning about the historical background and the political and social situation in which the foundations of the Kingdom of Louis XIV were laid.

Once outside the station you can enjoy the less city-like air of the French commune of Versailles. From afar, we can already see the façade of the Palace, the King's Stables, the Royal Chapel, the equestrian statue of the Sun King, among other things. It is in the latter where I will begin to tell you in a fun and entertaining way the dramatic, exciting, intriguing and heartbreaking history of the Palace during and after its heyday, until I reach the main entrance where you can discover the interiors of the Palace on your own. .

    Excelente guía, está muy bien informado y su explicación es bastante entretenida. Además de Versalles lo contratamos para otros tours personalizados, no se que hubiéramos hecho sin el.
