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.

Visitors to Versailles 1682-1789 (22 October 2017 - 25 February 2018)

The Palace of Versailles has always been a magnet for distinguished guests, especially during the 17th and 18th centuries when King Louis XIV and his heirs welcomed ambassadors, artists, writers, philosophers, architects, and scholars to their stately palace. This new exhibition assembles over 300 works, including portraits, sculptures, court attire, travel guides, tapestries, and porcelain to tell the stories of some of the Palace's most notable visitors.

Advance ticket booking helped in faster access, but security check is a tardy process, since ther are only 2 queues.

Getting and using the tiqets was great. The tour , however, was awful. The crowds were so bad ,you could hardly see. It was a suffocating experience. The gardens were nice, but most statues were covered. And in Nov no flowers were in bloom.

Super easy! Bought the tickets online the night before and downloaded them to my phone. Showed up the palace at 10:00am on a Wednesday and walked right in! No lines. Had no problem using my phone and picking up the Audio guide. Highly recommend.
