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.

A fantastic experience and a must see beautiful gardens, perhaps the biggest in world, walkable but recommended to rent one of the hire buggies available to be able to see all the gardens in a day.
If you booked ticket with entrance to the palace as well, make sure to be an hour in advance as the queues are massive. This is to avoid spent your planned time to visit in the queue.
There are good places to eat and rest in the gardens and is recommended to do it there instead in the restaurant within the castle which is expensive and does not have as much choices.
