Loading booking widget
Overview
Highlights
  • See a wide variety of preserved 18th-century French furniture in Baroque, Classicist and Empire style including the famous chests of André Charles Boulle
  • Enjoy the included audio guide to a UNESCO World Heritage site that's one of the most visited attractions in France

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.

It was very easy to buy the tickets and in the line for ticket holder visitors it was just showing your phone to the museum responsible.

Although the weather was hot, hot, hot we enjoyed ourselves at the chateu. It's a must see when in the Paris area.
The line to get in qued around but it moved quickly. We got alot out of the narration too.
The resturant was pricey but excellent. A good part of the experience.

I used this app for the first time to buy our tickets for Versailles which is always crowded no matter what time of day you go or season. The app is easy to use. Just follow the prompts. And when you get to the museum you stand in line for Ticket Holders. Show your receipt to the ticket taker on your phone and you are in! It was so easy.

It was certainly very positive to have purchased the tickets prior to travelling to Paris. There was a very long queue (1 hour) and it was extremely hot backing up the advice that Tuesday is not one of the best days to visit Versailles. The audio guide was very helpful with short yet concise briefings on a number of the rooms and historical persons linked to them. The rooms were very well laid out with many fantastic paintings and furniture to view. The only downside was that there were many tourists armed with their mobile phones and ipads who seemed to be interested only in taking as many pictures as possible and quite pushy in getting to their vantage points. The further that we went around the Chateau the crowds thinned down and we were able to enjoy observing the exhibits more closely. Definitely recommend it to people visiting Paris but try to avoid Tuesday at least.

Beautiful building and gardens. Make sure you know which day the fountains are on, its not everyday. I came a long way to see them and they where not working that day.
