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.

We were able to get our tickets scanned and begin our tour within an hour of arriving. We did get there a bit late so we skipped the line for the audio guide and toured the museum and gardens. Definitely a must see!

We've booked our tickets for the Castle of Versailles via tiqets.com. In the other reviews, we have read that the queue for the people that already purchased a ticket was long anyway. So we went there at 9am en there was indeed a long line, but it mooved really fast. When we came out of the castle around 1pm, the waiting queue was 4 times as long as the one in the morning. The castle and the gardens are really magnificent to visit and the price is ok for what you get. In the gardens you can eat at La Girandole, a little bistro with delicious and non-expensive food.
