Overview
Highlights
  • Walk through Marie Antoinette's private compound, one of the few things bigger than her gravity-defying hairdo!
  • Amble through 250 acres of landscaped garden, the stunning Hall of Mirrors, Royal Opera, The Grand Trianon and more
  • Admire French Art - the furniture is a large collection in Baroque, Classicist and Empire style. Check the beautifully preserved famous chests of André Charles Boulle
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.

Visitors to Versailles 1682-1789 (22 October 2017 - 25 February 2018)

The Palace of Versailles has always been a magnet for distinguished guests, especially during the 17th and 18th centuries when King Louis XIV and his heirs welcomed ambassadors, artists, writers, philosophers, architects, and scholars to their stately palace. This new exhibition assembles over 300 works, including portraits, sculptures, court attire, travel guides, tapestries, and porcelain to tell the stories of some of the Palace's most notable visitors.

Pre-booking tickets was great. Ceiling paintings really impressive and the Gallery of mirrors!! Very disappointed the fountains weren't working!! - evidently only work at weekends! Also little in the way of information inside the Palace in English within the Gallery of the history of the palace and the Louis X1V rooms. Audio guide didn't give as much information as we would have liked - other visitors said the same. Worth seeing Grand and Petite Trianon - enjoyed these and the gardens surrounding!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Palace. We arrived at 1000 AM, and there
was a very small line up, but recommend either getting there at 0900 when it opens,
or later in the afternoon when the crowds are thinner. We used our reserved tickets, and were able to walk in showing our online tickets quite easily. We picked up our audio system, but had a little difficulty utilizing it -- adding room numbers to access the narrative, as not all the rooms were easily identified. Our overall experience was excellent.

It is a magnificent site. Signage throughout the gardens in particular could be better. We got lost on many occasions as did many others.

We enjoyed our visit very much. The only thing I didn’t like, is everything is so expensive. For example, there are golf cart rentals for touring part of the gardens and grounds that are €34 per hour. The areas you are allowed to drive in are very limited. You are then required to leave your card in order to tour those areas. For every 15 minutes beyond your first hour, you are charged €8.5. It seems quite obvious, that in the carts and areas are set up so that you will exceed one hour if you stop.

If you love history this is brilliant . You can't rush it.
One word of advise , please take it. Buy tickets to by pass the queues. They are extra. But can wait easily up to 3 hours to get in. But once in its worth it. Will be going again

We received the tickets via email as barcodes. Once the codes were scanned at the entrance and then we had free access to everywhere

Arriving by 9:30 am on Thursday made entry easy with short queues.
The audio tour works very well when you can locate the number to key into the device for a commentary on that room. We missed a couple of rooms because the crowds obscured the small sign with number.
It would be nice if you could repeat an area but this is limited by the life of the battery charge.
