What to expect

Enjoy a gentle stroll in an authentic 18th-century city built during the reign of Louis XV and learn more about the history and the link with the Palace of Versailles.

The proximity to the palace gives it a certain royal feel, but the small paved roads and the picturesque houses also make it one of the most pleasant areas of the city.

You will pass by the famous attraction in the neighborhood called the Potager du Roi, or Kitchen Garden of the King, where fruits and vegetables were once produced for the royal court.

You will also visit the majestic baroque church that has become the Saint-Louis cathedral after the French Revolution. This cathedral is also famous for being the home to several important events such as the swearing-in ceremony for Pope Pie VII on January 3, 1805, during the coronation of Napoleon I.

After 1.30 hours of walking around Versailles, there are many cafes all around the area, so you can enjoy some great French cuisine at your own expense!
