-Discover the Palace of Versailles from Le Havre. -Spend the day with the Royals at Versailles. -Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV will have no more secrets for you ;o)
I will meet you at your pier in Le Havre - Honfleur or at your hotel.
On our 2hrs drive to Versailles Palace, I will explain you the context of the building of Versailles from a simple hunting manor, to the greatest castle ever made.
Then we'll start the tour of the Great Apartments where you will learn the life of Louis the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16Ith until the tragedy of the Revolution on October 6th 1789 when the royal family had to leave for ever.
After a complete tour you'll have lunch at Angelina Café, one of the best cafés in France.
After lunch we'll continue with the visit of the Great Trianon, Louis XIV escape mansion, the Petit Trianon, Louis XV's gift to "the Pompadour", and finally with the Queens's Hamlet where Marie Antoinette enjoyed playing a farmer.
To finish this tour I will also show you the gallery of the coaches.
Just like today someone is proud to show a new luxury car, these royal coaches were real signs old status for the king and the royal on the move.
