  • Enjoy the fountains and groves with their water features spouting to the rhythm of music, figuratively and metaphorically lighting the palace and its gardens

Description

The word grandeur could have been coined for Versailles itself - with this ticket you’ll be able to enjoy the entire package, not only the palace but also Marie Antoinette's separate estate and the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens. Find the secret passage she used during the French Revolution to reach the king's chamber.

In its heyday as the French royal court, Versailles accommodated 10,000 people; it's always been synonymous with extreme extravagance. This opulence is exemplified by the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors). It’s a 75 m-long ballroom, adorned with busts and statues (and - of course - mirrors, 357 of them). Not only a beautiful building, it’s also where the Treaty of Versailles was signed to put an end to WWI, and one of France’s most visited sites.

Marie Antoinette famously said “let them eat cake” and her elitist tastes can be seen by the fact that Versailles wasn’t quite big enough for her. She was given her own little 'hamlet' on the edge of the estate (which is comprised of three 'smaller' palaces).

And for the pièce de résistance you can bask in a royal glow with either the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Garden (it depends on the day you visit). The former allows you to amble by the fountains and groves as the water features keep time with classical music. The latter gives you a courtly promenade through the gardens as classical music sets the mood. Either way, it's a good idea to pack your most elaborate powdered wig.

Currently undergoing a €400 million restoration program, slated for completion in 2020, some of Versailles may be clad in scaffolding when you visit. But don't let that put you off: with 700 rooms, 67 staircases, tons of priceless art, and the lovingly maintained gardens, you'll have plenty of awe-inspiring sights.

The castle and the gardens were beautiful, however I don’t know whether it was worth the two hour wait in the line in the sweltering heat beforehand. There was no shade anywhere. I suggest going either as soon as it opens or much later in the afternoon.

A family I met at the Louvre yesterday gave me a tip: To avoid standing in the very long line at the Versailles, go to the entrance for the guided tour. You get in right away. The guide gave us a very good tour of about an hour after which we were free to wander about on our own. I was disappointed that Marie Antoinette's apartment is undergoing renovation and closed to the public.
The musical fountains in the garden are a spectacular show, and definitely worth a visit.
