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.

We took bikes and cycled around the grounds which was lovely. The restaurant was very nice and reasonably priced. We didn’t go into the palace as the queue was 5 hours long!!

It was an amazing experience! The palace is grand and the gardens are breath taking! It would take a whole day to explore the entire place! Too bad that we were not able to stay for the spectacular fountain show in the evening! Palace of Versailles is a must see!

An amazing experience. A very tangible way to relate to the history of the country during your visit, especially if you aren’t typically a history buff.
