Description

In the public mind, the name Versailles conjures up notions of the sumptuous palace and vast landscaped gardens. But did you know there's also a third part? With this passport ticket, you’ll be able to explore The Queen’s Hamlet, Marie Antoinette’s private compound.

The main palace and gardens are extravagant beyond belief. More than 700 rooms, a large collection of 18th-century French art, an opera house and a 75 m-long hall of mirrors lined with statues and busts.

The gardens feature all manner of luxuries and follies that a European monarch just couldn’t do without: meticulously manicured lawns, hundreds of ornate fountains and statues of Greek gods emerging from water pools.

But that's not all: the famously profligate Marie Antoinette wasn't content with the room she had at Versailles, so she insisted on having her own compound away from the main palace. And boy howdy, did she get it!

Two smaller - though still grand - palaces, known as the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon, already existed on the edge of the grounds. She took these and added a village of idyllic, rustic buildings that came to be known as The Queen’s Hamlet. It was all fun and games till the rabble came calling…

Versailles has a total area of more than 2,000 acres, so there’s plenty of magnificence to go round - or above! (In 1783, the first balloon flight experiment was held for the king. The passengers included a duck, a rooster, and a sheep).

Note

The four rooms in the Queen’s State Apartment are currently closed for renovation. Visitors can learn about Marie-Antoinette’s world in other places, such as the Petit Trianon and the Queen Hamlet.

Getting tickets online is a must for Versailles these days. It's so easy to do and it gets rid of that pesky need to buy separate tickets. As for Versailles, it is still one of the worlds most fantastic palaces on the planet. See the grand rooms but be sure to arrive early so that you have time to stroll the gardens and ride a bike around the grounds. There is so much to see there that it is a shame that so few people really explore all there is to see.

Ask to join a guided tour for only another 10 euros. You get to see the private apartment and beat all the queues and the guides are fantastic 😁

It was simple for us to use Tiqets to book for Versailles, the entry process was smooth using our iPhone barcode; we were on site in minutes. The visit itself was phenomenal and would go back on a sunny warmer day.
