From Versailles: Treasures from the Palace … a tapestry in wool, silk and gold thread, showing an audience with Cardinal Chigi from the series Life of the King.You’ve still got a couple of weeks to get to Canberra’s National Gallery of to see Versailles: Treasures from the Palace, their current block-buster exhibition.
And please heed my advice. This is one not to be missed. It’s obviously neither as big nor as spectacular as the real thing on the outskirts of Paris but it’s certainly impressive and worth travelling to see.
Accor’s Canberra hotels are offering special deals until the exhibition closes on April 17, with rates starting from $109 per night at Canberra Ibis Styles and going up to $167 at Novotel Canberra.
The rates include a night’s accommodation, a glass of French bubbly, buffet breakfast for two, two tickets to the exhibition, a souvenir tote bag, complimentary audio package and a day’s membership to the gallery.
