Paris has long been known for its historical heritage and the excellence of its fashion designers. This summer, the Grandes Eaux Musicales in Versailles and Paris Fashion Week celebrate this richness.
The Ancien Régime – feel as if you were a part of it
From its inception, the Château de Versailles has hosted some of the most luxurious events in the history of the French monarchy. Organised by Louis XIV, a monarch who was particularly fond of theatre and dance, these sumptuous festivities reflected the greatness of French art. Today, the Grandes Eaux Musicales of Versailles celebrates the same traditions of abundance and luxury. Each year, the palace opens its magnificent gardens for an event that recalls the atmosphere of the era. Filled with hundreds of statues and fountains, the gardens are an enchanting setting for afternoon or evening walks along the boundaries of one of the most famous palaces in Europe. As you journey back through time, you’ll be accompanied by the tunes of some of the most talented composers of the day. The magical combination of water, music, and light will turn your royal stroll into an unforgettable experience. See you in Versailles from 31 March to 31 October 2017!
