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.

I am afaid the crowds of tourists in huge groups, even off season and at 10am, made this one of the most unenjoyable tourist experiences I have had. I suppose it cannot be helped. Could hardly move in the state appartments. Groups were stopping and posing for photos, and it was difficult to see much. Once I got away from the main areas, and onto the Battle Galleries, things became a little better. Buying the ticket was the easy part.

In spite of a large attendance, the queue to enter the Palace moved quickly and easily. I was one of many indication of how well this superb property is managed.

Worth every penny!! Just beautiful! I have waited a long time to find the best time to visit this wonderful palace and it did MOT disappoint. Be sure to get there early, like 9am when it opens as we watched huge queues build up after us.

we got the train to versailles which was much cheaper than going by taxi and very easy to do.
The palace looked very impressive on approach but the queues were long. we arrived at about 11am and already had a ticket, but still had to wait 2 hrs to get in the palace.
I would recommend arriving first thing in the morning as it opens.
Even though the palace was impressive, i preferred the gardens. Music was playing the whole time. I would have preferred the fountains to be on instead, but it was still nice.
As a tourist you have to make time to visit this amazing building and gardens!!!
