Versailles Royal Palace & Gardens with Exclusive Petit Apartments

Versailles Royal Palace & Gardens with Exclusive Petit Apartments

Thanks to an exclusive collaboration with the Palace of Versailles, this immersive experience grants you access to the private chambers of the King’s Apartments. Often referred to as the Petit Apartments, these rooms served as the intimate living quarters of the monarchs. While the grand apartement du roi and the appartement du roi were accessible to court members and the public, the petit appartement du roi required the king's personal permission for entry. Step into the world of royalty and the inner circle of the court and family as you explore these uncrowded chambers.

In addition to the King’s Apartments, your journey encompasses a comprehensive exploration of the expansive and opulent realm of the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Limited to a maximum of six guests, this semi-private tour offers an intimate experience. Accompanied by your knowledgeable, English-speaking guide, you will unravel the rich history and extravagant beauty of this iconic palace and its gardens.
