Enjoy this exclusive guided tour to the King’s Private Apartments with the palace's official English speaking guide. Peek into the lives of French royalty with this tour that is generally closed to the public. The Private Apartments of King Louis XIV are home to a magnificent collection of artwork. His son, Louis XV had the Clock Room built inside the apartments. The room’s floor is a clock, displaying the day of the week, month, year, and the lunar quarter. It also features a crystal sphere depicting the solar system. You will also come across other interesting places like the Porcelain Dining Room, Louis XVI’s Library, and the Games Room, all of which were later added to the apartments.
Overlooking the Midi Parterre, the King and Queen's Apartment initially belonged to Queen Maria Theresa and King Louis XIV. Known for its perfectly symmetrical structure; the apartments are home to the Nobles' Room, the Queen's Personal Bedchambers, the Royal Table Antechamber, and the Queen's Guardroom. Built adjacent to the Marble Courtyard and near the King's Apartment, it is one of the closed areas of the palace and is only accessible through this tour.
