Versailles is without doubt the most magnificent palace in the world. The sheer opulence and beauty of this breathtaking edifice must be witnessed. The Chateau symbolises the zenith of French power, influence and taste. Your private tour takes you to the most sublime parts of this huge palace and gardens.
The present palace, started by Louis XIV in 1668, grew around Louis XIII`s original hunting lodge. The innovative architect Louis de Vau built the first section, which expanded into an enlarged courtyard. From 1678, Jules Hardouin-Mansart added north and south wings and the Hall of Mirrors. He also designed the chapel, completed in 1710. The Opera House was added by Louis XV in 1770. The gardens were then enlarged and broke the monotony of the symmetrical layout with expanses of water and creative use of uneven ground.
