Enter 12 miles of enclosing walls, 26 acres of roof and over 2000 windows and experience the royal Palace of Versailles.
The first stop is the famous Chateau at Versailles, well known in the pages of history. It lures you in with its quaintness and charm and then mystifies your visual senses! The Hall of Mirrors is the most famous of the rooms and certainly the most spectacular. Over 200 feet long, the Hall of Mirrors took ten years to build and decorate, and it is also the legendary location of the Treaty of Versailles signing.
Meander through the beautiful and widespread gardens at Versailles with our hostess, Laura McKenzie. It?s easy to enjoy the 2000 acres of grounds, 27 miles of trellises, 50 fountains, 200,000 trees, and 210,000 flowers planted every year!
Next, we'll join Laura as she hits the hotspots of Versailles. If you're looking for some good ol' famous fun, then you'll enjoy Parc Asterix, a family theme park with a midway full of games for all skill levels. Want a little shopping time? Place Vendome is the top spot for high-end merchandise! Dominating the destination is the Colonne de la Grande Armee, also called ?the statue in the middle,? the statue of Napoleon at the top is a copy of the original.
Paris is truly magical after sunset. Even the monuments take on a whole new presence at night. The beauty and romance of it all? ?C?est magnifique!? After just one night in Paris, you?ll understand how ?The City of Lights? got its name and why it?s one of Laura?s favorite cities in the world!
