The photos are wonderful! I have been at Versailles twice, and read almost all there is, but I still have not seen any pictures of the hidden Versailles. The kitchen, children's rooms, servant room etc.

Thank you so much for the link, it was very interesting.
I don't understand how they could make a bathroom (which had hot and cold running water and one of the few flush toilets in the palace). Just as I don't understand the fountains. How did they do this without electrisity? How did the water get to travel up without an electric pump?

I am more interested in the small apartements than the grand ones. Like, how long did it take to walk from the kitchen to the apartement, where were the nurseries, and where did all the garbage go? It had to have been houndreds of people living there, and even the lowest servant produces litter, and needs food and a bed.

Well, I do know that her petit apartments are centered behind the grand apparetements de la reine, and around the cour du dauphin. The main floor apartments are, the cabinet a chaise, la meridienne, bibliotheque(green) bibliotheque(blue) cabinet dore, salle de bain de maria lecsynska.
The only ones that I know on the attic level is the salle de billards. I'm sure there is a nursery up there, for easy acess. Although I'm pretty sure there was a nurse that took care of les enfants.
Hope this helps!

I think under Louis the fourteenth servants of nobles were not allowed to live in Versailles so the nobles often had to keep a house in the town of Versailles just for their servants.

at the time, i think so, and mostly because it wasnt big enough just yet to have room for the servants.

Just one question. Is it possible to book a tour to the private appartaments on advance or the only way to buy a ticket is to wait the long queues at the Palace?
Where can you book or buy the tickets? I think the web page says nothing about this.

i believe it must be on certain days, and tickets can be purchased from versailles only at versailles.
so i believe you must go early!
