Au programme

Nearly 90% of visitors to the Palace of Versailles miss the hidden beauty of the private estate of Queen Marie-Antoinette. Come with us and distance the crowds as we discover areas once reserved for the private lives and loves of the royals.

With a diamond-encrusted key, King Louis XVI offered his beloved wife Marie Antoinette an escape from the public life in the Palace that she found so suffocating. This key opened the doors to a secret world, far removed from the life at the palace that she so hated, and accessible to only a chosen few. With your expert local guide, you'll visit the small palace of the Petit Trianon, her private world and the place where she was happiest. Follow in her footsteps, through her English gardens and into the place she called home, furnished today as it was then. We'll also get a peek into her private theater, often called 'the jewel of Versailles', installed so the queen herself could star in popular plays applauded by her fashionable ladies-in-waiting!

We'll wander through the beautiful gardens to her replica rustic village, evoking Normandy with its thatched cottages and dairy farm. Far from the elaborate life and rituals of the palace, the queen would play at being a shepherdess surrounded by her closest friends and confidantes.

No visit to Versailles is complete without exploring the secluded charm of the Petit Trianon!

Don’t hesitate! Book this experience! We booked this experience the day prior on a whim. Although I was pleased to see Versailles, I was beyond eager to visit Petit-Trianon and I was so happy we used this experience to do so. Tristan was an incredible guide! Funny, intelligent, adventurous, and patient! He truly made the experience and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and got the most out of our experience. He was very knowledgeable of the area and took us through some gorgeous paths that we probably would have missed on our own. He had in depth knowledge of the history and told great stories. As we were the only two on the tour that day, he even had us pose for photos and saw to it that we arrived back to gardens in time to view the fountains before departing. Thank you, Tristan for such a great day!
