Cycling tour in VersaillesSpend your day riding through the tree-lined gardens and near the Grand Canal. The average Versailles tourist doesn't realise that they can only visit a small fraction of the gardens on foot. You will see it all!
Hall of MirrorsUsed by King Louis XIV as the place to welcome important guests (and also for opulent parties). Also the site of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 that officially ended World War I.
Chateau GardensThe world-famous gardens are alone worth the trip. We spend most of our day in the outer gardens and along the Grand Canal. These are only enjoyed on a bicycle and are virtually impossible to see on foot. Our guests typically enjoy the gardens even more than the Chateau itself.
The ChateauOriginally the royal hunting lodge. King Louis XIV moved his court officially to Versailles in 1682 and it became the seat of the French government and monarchy. The Château housed the royal family until 1789 when Revolutionaries forced them to return to Paris.
Grand & Petit TrianonsBuilt by Kings Louis XIV and XV respectively, they offer a fantastic view into the original Versailles. Each is located in the exterior gardens, away from the Chateau. Charles de Gaulle had an office in the Grand Trianon after World War II.
