Witness the History of Versailles

The ultimate feat of French Baroque architecture, Versailles became the inspiration for countless palaces across the world. Originally the hunting grounds of Louis XIV’s father, the appropriately named Louis XIII, the younger Louis commissioned the Palace and gardens to be built as an escape from the overcrowded French capital. This UNESCO World Heritage site is the epitome of luxury and though 60 minutes is not nearly enough time to visit all 2,000 rooms,your guide will ensure you see all of the important highlights.

The Hall of Mirrors and Grand Apartments

This virtual tour of the interior of Versailles focuses on it’s two most famous areas, the Hall of Mirrors and the Grand Apartments. As the name suggests, The Hall of Mirrors is a massive room completely covered with 357 mirrors to be exact.. Incredibly, the entire 70 meter long hall can be fully illuminated by only a handful of candles. Most famously, the Hall of Mirrors acted as the signing room for the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, ending World War I. Learn about the hall’s history, architecture and some amazing tales of this iconic place.

The Grand Apartments were the living quarters of the King and also the chambers of Louis XV’s daughters, who lived in the extravagant rooms until the French Revolution. A classic representation of Bourbon wealth and luxury, these decadent bedrooms go well beyond the standard apartment.

Palace of Versailles Gardens

The Gardens at Versailles are so large and meticulously designed that it literally took an army to build them. By Louis XIV’s request, the best trees from across France were transported by army regiments to be hosted in the impeccable gardens. Consuming an area of over 2,000 acres the gardens contain over 1,400 fountains and 400 sculptures. A horticulturist’s dream, your guide will lead you virtually, as you tour the jaw dropping greenery.

Cooking with Chef Akash

Chef Akash is so warm and personable! This was our second meal with him, and it was another fun time. It was a little harder to follow - some screen freezing and hard to hear- but Chef Akash smooths it over. He's very responsive to questions and gives 100% to make sure everyone can follow.

TIKKA MASALA WITH AKASH

This was our third time cooking with Akash and this dish was one of our favorites. He does such a great job of explaining what to do and how to make substitutions for hard to find ingredients. Delicious!
