There’s also the chance to join an optional guided city tour, taking in all the main sights. Later, there’s time to enjoy an early dinner before the coach takes us back to our hotel.
Day 3 – Palace of Versailles
Today we visit the spectacular Palace of Versailles, France’s second most popular attraction after the Eiffel Tower, set amidst magnificent landscaped formal gardens. Built in the mid-17th century during the reign of King Louis XIV, the palace boasts lavish interiors including the King's and Queen's State Apartments, Marie Antoinette’s bedrooms, as well as the opulent Hall of Mirrors, still used today to entertain Heads of State. The palace also offers an incredible insight into French history. Afterwards we return to central Paris to explore at leisure, including time to enjoy an early dinner before the coach takes us to the hotel.
