Versailles by Bike


The Château de Versailles, which has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List for three decades, is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century French art and a wonderful way to discover its beauty is on a tour with Blue Bike Tours.

First stop is a visit to the local market to browse the food stalls and pick out what you want for a picnic along the lake, then spend the day discovering the exquisite gardens, the inside of Marie Antoinette’s private domain, Grand & Petit Trianons, and then it is off the bike to take advantage of the company’s Skip-The-Line access into the Palace itself, to marvel at the Hall of Mirrors.

The bikes are excellent and as you ride around from place to place you will learn about the life, legends and scandals of the Sun King, Marie-Antoinette and the French Revolution.
