Le Havre Shore Excursion - This cruise tour visits the most famous Chateau in France and likely all of Europe. In addition to touring the stunning Chateau of Versailles there is time to see the beautiful gardens.

After meeting your guide you immediately depart for Versailles. When you arrive you will have free time for lunch and photos of the gardens before your guided visit of the Chateau.

The Chateau of Versailles was built over the period of 1623 to 1710. It was started by Louis XIII, then continued by his son Louis XIV and finished by Louis XV. It started out as a hunting manor, but was continually added on to.

The building is so large that at one point over 10,000 people lived in it, including the entire royal court, the government and their servants. The interior highlights include the Hall of Mirrors, the King's Apartments and the Queen's Apartments.

Due to overcrowding Louis XIV had a small palace (Le Petite Trianon) built in the woods behind the ch̀¢teau so that his immediate family could vacation away from the main building. Louis XV's wife, Marie Antoinette, had a small farm (L'Hameau) built around a pond so she too could escape the crowds and play at being an idyllic shepherdess complete with perfumed sheep!

The formal grounds, fountains, reflecting pools, lakes, smaller palace and hamlet are just as impressive as the main building.

After your visit to Versailles you return to the pier in Le Havre.
