Royal Serenade & Versailles Night Fountains Show

Versailles private tour with skip the Line & Hotel Pick-up/Drop-off - Royal Serenade + Fountains Night Show

For over 100 years, Versailles was the most glittering court in Europe, whose grand balls were legendary for their decadence.

Now once again for the first time since the Revolution, the corridors of Versailles resound with the music of yesteryear, and the Hall of Mirrors echoes with the step of dancing shoes as, every Saturday from June to September, Versailles resurrects the glory of Louis XIV’s Grand Soirées.

Starting in the early afternoon, let us take you on the tour of a lifetime as you relive the luster of the royal Great Entertainments with a guided visit of the chateau and the Petit Trianon.

From there once inside the palace, marvel at the celebrated musical spectacle performed in baroque costume: THE ROYAL SERENADE IN THE HALL OF MIRRORS of the chateau de Versailles. Afterwards, you will dine in the Ore restaurant of Alain Ducasse in the Chateau itself, before returning to the gardens to enjoy with your private guide the night fountain show. Your night will finish with a bang as you watch the dazzling fireworks show. In true fairytale style, you will be back at your hotel by the stroke of midnight.

Early afternoon & night tour

With dining, dancing, gambling and singing, it goes without saying that the Kings of Versailles new the importance of a good ball. Louis XIV even claimed that they were essential for governing the country as, enchanted by the decadence, the dazzled courtiers submitted to the king without question.
Now you too can experience the wonders of these parties as, for a limited time only, Versailles revived these spectacular Great Entertainments during the Royal Serenade Show inside the hall of mirror of the Chateau de Versailles.

To begin your visit, your private professionally accredited, specialist guide will take you on a guided tour through the King’s State Apartments. Setting the scene for the spectacular show you will see later on.

From there you will take the Little Train down to the Petit Trianon.
You will visit the Petit Trianon which became a symbol of the extravagance of its most famous owner: Marie Antoinette turned the Petit Trianon into a haven from the realities of life in Versailles. With its delicate decoration and simplicity, it is in stark contrast to the wealth of the Palace. Your superb guide will take you along the winding pathways of the English garden to the rustic splendor of the hamlet, where the queen would play at being a peasant maid.

From there you will return to the chateau where the party will really get started. You will have the chance to wander through the chateau and fall under the spell of the Versailles musical show. Here you will have the chance to see actors dressed in period costumes. They will bring to life, through dance, poetry, song and jestor’s wit that ephemeral glamour of the « Grand Entertainment ».

Prepare to be amazed at the groves which have been transformed into works of art of light and sound for an audio-visual spectacle. This is a modern take on the festivities which would have awed visitors to Versailles 400 years ago.
