Versailles

Versailles. More than a palace, Versailles is a testimony of the french "Vie de Chateau".
 
Our tour will take you to various part of the palace to experiment a day in the very lavish life of a member of the court.You will see more gold in a day than you saw in your entire life, you will learn how the people lived in the city/palace, what they ate, how they partied and because a palace tour wouldn't be complete without a bit of gossip:who they loved.
 
The tour starts at 2pm in front of Louis the XIVth equestrian sculpture (Place d'Armes).
We will start in the kitchen garden, the "potager" to show you what the people used to eat, afterwards we will head to the palace to experiment the grandeur of the appartements of the King. You will learn more about the life of two of the most famous residents of the Palace: Louis the XIVth and Marie Antoinette and how they transformed power, fashion and the image of France abroad.
 
Because a visit to Versailles wouldnt be complete without the "plat de resistance" a walk in the extraordinary gardens of the palace. The gardens are full of hidden messagages from Louis to the court, we will try to find them all by didving in Greek and roman mythology.
 
If the weather is good we will visit the gardens by bike to make the most of the gardens. If the rain makes cycling a bit tricky we will take the petit train instead to reach the Domain of Marie-Antoinette where we will visit the Trianon and her farm. Our guide will escort you back to the entrance of the Palace where the tour will end.

A trip to the Loire is the opportunity to dive into the royal history of France, discover the changes brought by the Renaissance in terms of the king's comfort, the architectural innovation in the royal palaces and in general the evolution of art.

This trip is also an opportunity to discover the great wineries of Saumur, Vouvray and Chinon, and taste their great wines after a walk along the Loire, one of the last wild rivers in Europe for bird-watching.
