Palace of Versailles

Versailles wasn't built in a day! In fact, the palace was constructed over a period of 50 years by the Sun King, Louis XIV. Following his lead, his successors also wanted to leave their mark, adding extra features until the revolution intervened. Today, Versailles is a wonderful memorial to three centuries of French royal history.

What to expect

Situated in the French department of Yvelines and less than 45 minutes from Paris, come and explore the beautiful animal park of Thoiry. Opened in 1967, the château de Thoiry was the first African reserve opened in France and remains a must-see zoo for all animal lovers. Everything has been set in place in order to allow visitors to get as close as possible to the animals. With part of the safari by car and part by foot, as well as a castle tour with historical gardens, Thoiry is a superb idea for a family day out from Paris!
