The Palace and gardens

The Palace and gardens

Versailles is the finest and the most complete achievement of French art in the 17th century. The former hunting lodge of Louis XIII was transformed and vastly enlarged by his son Louis XIV who installed his court and the government of France here. In 1661, he commissioned André Le Nôtre to design and lay out the gardens of Versailles, a titanic undertaking that took forty years to complete. From the apartments of the Sun King to the Grand Trianon of Napoleon, the Château and its gardens have been constantly transformed over the centuries.

Marie-Antoinette

Marie-Antoinette

Visit the Petit Trianon, the Queen’s Theatre and the Queen’s Hamlet, and enter into the intimacy of Marie-Antoinette, who has remained one of the most fascinating figures in the history of Versailles. In charge of the entertainment provided at the court, she liked to get away from it in the graceful and peaceful setting of her own estate.
