Getting to and from Versailles
Touring the Palace of Versailles
|The Royal Chapel|
The Hall of Mirrors
The hall is made up of seventeen mirror-clad arches that reflect the seventeen arcaded windows that overlook the gardens. Each arch contains twenty-one mirrors with a total complement of 357 used in the decoration of the galerie des glaces. The arches themselves are fixed between marble pilasters whose capitals depict the symbols of France including the fleur-de-lys and the Gallic cockerel or rooster.
The Bed Chambers
|The King’s Bedroom|
Paintings and Decorative Accents
|A marble panel in The War Room|
|A statue of Louis XIV in the Diana Room|
Touring the Gardens and Outer Buildings
|The Estate of Trianon|
We absolutely loved touring Versailles and can’t wait to visit again. We spent about 4 hours but could have stayed all day long.
