Explore the Luxuriance of the Château De Versailles on a Private Tour

It is said to have the potential of holding up to 20,000 people and boasts 700 rooms, more than 2,000 windows, 1,250 chimneys, and 67 staircases. Erection was started in 1661 and took almost 20 years to complete and it is said the striking gardens took over 40 years to finish! During the summer months, there is music in the gardens and a spectacular fountain show to be seen on a sightseeing tour of Versailles.

"You're in charge here now. Save my poor Versailles," Louis the 16th is said to have cried as the royal family fled its extravagant occupancy in the early times of the French Revolution. Versailles indeed was saved, though not for the hapless monarch. Of its many restorations, the most recent is that of Marie Antoinette's private theatre.

To bring the illusions back to life, it employed traditional masons, gilders, painters, and tapestry weavers—such as the Lyons textile firm, in business since the 18th century, that was hired to re-create the original blue linen-and-silk fabric adorning the walls. See Louis's library, reportedly a favourite room of his and the formal dining room in which he held important dinners for nobility on a guided tour to Versailles. Possibly see the roll-top desk which said to be the finest piece of furniture on earth with a custom private tour of the palace of Versailles.
