Description

With hundreds of acres of magnificent gardens and ornaments everywhere you look, this 17th-century French castle is a masterclass in swankiness. Get the royal treatment yourself with this ticket by skipping the purchase line. While the splendor amazes your eyes, the included audio guide will fill your head with context.

Unbelievable as it may seem, this complex was initially a humble brick-and-stone hunting lodge built for Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV (the Sun King) went his own way, turning it into an enormous monument to architecture, art, and the fine taste of the French monarchy. There are no half-measures in its conception or execution (it has more than 1,200 fireplaces!).

That opulence is most evident in the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), a 75m-long ballroom lined with statues and busts. It has 17 arched windows, each embellished with 21 individual mirrors. For those keeping score, that means light beams off 357 mirrors in total.

But the Palace of Versailles isn't just famed for its magnificence - it was also where the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end WWI. Versailles is one of the most visited attractions in France, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The audio guide that comes along with this ticket will give you all sorts of info and stories about the history of this magnificent complex.

Currently undergoing a €400 million restoration program, slated for completion in 2020, some of it 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 not be short of awe-inspiring sights.

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.

Purchasing tickets on line was quick & easy. However on the day we went there it made little difference in the line up for getting inside the Palace.

Last Sunday in August is NOT a good day to visit Versailles. Multiple busses unloading their groups in the morning made for LONG lines, even for those who already held tickets. Next time I would pay more to have an appointment time for entry.

Too crowded, not enough restroom.
It is not worth for 2 h30 minutes get line waiting for entering to the palace.

We bought tickets for the palace and audio guide and the experience was absolutely brilliant, a definite MUST SEE.
HOWEVER, you need tickets for the garden if it is weekend or music show night, another 37 Euros. In fact you need tickets for everything! It is worth seeing but it is Expensive! and the queues are massive, I mean Massive. Everything in Versailles is Massive and although the fireworks don't rival Sydney or even Spanish fiestas, the fire show is great and the view of the chateau from the lake, lit up at night is superb. Big price but big place.

Great experience one you are through security, however the 2 hour wait outside in the sun - not too great.
