What to expect

Treat yourself with a guided visit to the Chateau de Versailles and a gourmet lunch at the splendid Ore restaurant managed by famous master chef Alain Ducasse.

You'll meet your guide in downtown Paris to take the train to Versailles. Once you reach the Chateau, you’ll learn more about the royal personalities who inhabited the site. You’ll hear about how the royal family was continuously on display, how they subjugated the proud nobles and recaptured preeminence in fashion and art production from Italy back to France. Enjoy astonishing anecdotes about the lavish lifestyle of Marie Antoinette, and you’ll understand how uncomfortable she was at this public palace, preferring her private domains. Her excesses at Versailles failed to impress the French people, and in 1789 she fell from power never to see the palace again.

Your guide will accompany you through the luxurious gardens of Versailles, the setting for promenades, performances, and pyrotechnics! On days when the fountains are active, you’ll appreciate the added value of the elegant and omnipresent bubbling jets of water.

At the end of your visit, you’ll enjoy a delicious meal in an exclusive and refined setting. Located in the 18th century royal apartments, the Ore restaurant features fine French cuisine by award-winning chef Alain Ducasse. Have lunch in style with beautiful views and fine French flavors.
