Palace Of Versailles

How to relive the magnificence, the elegance and the contradictions of the precious court of Versailles at the time of the Sun King? Paristroller proposes the Palace of Versailles tour, a guided path at the discovery of Louis XIV’s house.

Our Paris guides with ministerial authorization will provide you with detailed and precise explanations about the history of the court in Italian language.

This royal palace is one of the biggest and most elegant palaces in the world. A genuine piece of jewellery of Baroque architecture where every fancy of the “Sun King” was fulfilled. Known not only for its huge gardens, Versailles hides the evocative Hall of mirrors, apartments rich in precious decorations and works of art, a great number of anecdotes and curiosities about the Sun King and his mistresses.

As far as the “Palace of Versaille” tour is concerned, Parigirando organizes both private and group shuttle buses, travels by train or by coach for large groups. Moreover, our special rate includes the reservation and the purchase of the skip-the-line tickets, help and coordination of the travel for private customers and large groups.

In a single day you’ll discover the marvels of a timeless world where the French grandeur originated and where great politicians and artists rose. Throughout centuries, Versailles has preserved the symbols of Royal Absolutism and it gave back reminiscences of tradition and modern times to its numerous visitors.

Today Versailles is still a genuine place for French history, a cultural spot characterized by the succession of political powers. From Louis XIV to Napeoleon, from the general De Gaulle to Mitterand, the royal palace has moulded itself to fashions and needs of the different times, keeping however its original huge structural elements.

About Sara

Since she was a baby, since she could touch her home library books for the first time, Sara has developed a great interest for archaeology, anthropology, art and beauty in all its forms, from painting to music, from fashion to food.

Once grown up, she decided to make of all her passions a true job, so that she could share her passions and once at university, in Venice, she turned from historical researcher into tourist guide and personal shopper.

When she moved to Paris, she gained the tourist guide card, so she could convey to travellers her passion for the thousand sides of the VilleLumière. She can lead them into the genuine heart of Parisian life, guiding them to discover the most famous or unusual places, from huge boulevards to narrow medieval streets, high fashion boutiques and small shops, great monuments and traces from the past.

Lover of antiques, good wine and good food, she’s in love with the stories of people who made Paris great, too.

She will make you live again the history of the French capital city through anecdotes, legends and peculiarities. You’ll discover monuments and museums in an art historian perspective, and you’ll never get bored.

Why not admire Versailles, the vacuity of Impressionism, the jewish quarter, and why not a good croissant in one of the best patisseries in town?
