In this book, you'll find answers to all of children's (and grown-ups') questions about the Palace of Versailles.
30 reference sheets to the works of art, based on questions of children aged 5 to 13, allow you to take in the estate, from palace interiors to gardens, including the Trianon palaces. A history of the palace and its kings and queens, as well as practical information for a successful visit with kids; complete this extremely instructive book for parents, grandparents and teachers.
