In the morning and the early afternoon, French students and their partners visited the Palace and the gardens of Versailles with a guide. They learnt the history of the Palace of Versailles. It started in the 17th century when Versailles was first a hunting lodge, then it became a seat of power, and finally, from the 19th century onwards, it was a museum. They visited all the rooms of the Palace, like the Hall of Mirrors and they learnt about how the King’s court worked. They also had a picnic on the Gardens grass. Then, they discovered Paris and the main monuments during a city tour on a bus.
All the students learnt more about French History. They traveled in time for a day.
