Versailles Bike Tour

Spend a day outside of Paris visiting the illustrious palace town of Versailles on a guided bike tour of the gardens and grounds, an informative audio guide of the palace and a picnic along the Versailles Grand Canal. After short train ride to the countryside, you’ll hop on your bicycle and cruise to the famous Versailles city market. Let your taste buds guide you as you peruse the market square choosing delicious items for your later picnicking pleasure. Afterwards, you’ll head to the palace’s stunning gardens, including Marie Antoinette’s hamlet escape and the Petit and Grand Trianons. You’ll reach for your marketplace picnic as you rest for sun-filled moments beside the Grand Canal. Afterwards, you’ll ditch your bike and head to the great Chateau—skipping past the line for an easy entry. Engage with the enchanting artwork and passageways, the very rooms in which French royalty once lived and ruled.
