Versailles Virtual Tour
Versailles is perhaps the world's most famous palace. From 1682 until the revolution in 1789, it was the capital of France. It was a showcase of French artistry on a scale never before (or since) attempted.
Today, it is an unmatched tourist attraction, pulling in 10 million visitors a year to view the magnificent works of art, furniture, architecture and gardens.
Now you can see this magnificent Palace and its gardens through the Versailles Virtual Tour. See Louis XIV's bedroom, and Louis XVI's grotto in the gardens, even Marie Antoinette's private rooms where she could escape the constant public gaze.
