You have always dreamt of strutting in a beautiful dress, practicing baroque dance and trying your hand at pool in a majestic venue? The Fêtes Galantes held in the Hall of Mirrors are likely to delight you! On Monday May 28, 2018, come to the Palace of Versailles dressed in a costume as marvelous as those worn during Louis XIV’s period.
The palace’s most stunning rooms will be wide open so that this exceptional evening can be full of entertainments like during the glorious time of Louis XIV. Lovers of the place directly coming from the great century will guide you to make you discover or rediscover the private apartments: the King’s, Madame du Barry’s or Louis XV’s six daughters – Mesdames. The night will draw to a close with a firework to be admired from the Hall of Mirrors after the grand ball.
