The Palace of Versailles is one of outstanding beauty, the architecture, artwork, and sumptuous interior decoration sure to take your breath away. Most famous for its Hall of Mirrors – one of those 'must-see' historical bucket list places, the UNESCO listed site is absolutely huge with more than 700 rooms in the main palace alone and over 350 acres of gardens and grounds. Most visitors to Versailles only see the State Rooms inside the palace and a tiny portion of the gardens, missing out on Trianon Palace entirely which contains the Grand and Petit Palaces and The Private Estate of Marie Antoinette aka The Queens Hamlet, there are also 'secret rooms' in the main palace that can be seen on a VIP experience. There are tours aimed at history lovers, tours aimed at families, tours that just show you the highlights and those that are 'access all areas'. We even found some unique tours by bike and Segway for those who like activities that are slightly different from the norm!
