With this special Palace of Versailles two-day ticket, you will have access to the Gardens, Estate of Trianon, and Coach Gallery for a second day, as well as being able to enjoy the Musical Gardens audio guide or the famous Fountain Show. Please note: You can't visit the Palace a second time. You must visit the Palace of Versailles on the first day via the timeslot chosen with your reservation.

  • See an unmissable UNESCO World Heritage Site that was the opulent backdrop of France’s history
  • Explore the palace and see its stunning ballrooms, and see Marie Antoinette’s picture-perfect hamlet
  • Meander the gardens to the sound of classical music, or catch fountain show set to royal rhythms

The word 'grandeur' is synonymous with Versailles – and just one look at this magnificent palace will tell you why. With this ticket, you can marvel at the palace's lavish interiors, explore Marie Antoinette’s hamlet, and top off the experience with access to the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens.

During its heyday as the French Royal Court, the palace accommodated up to 10,000 people. Each opulent room was designed to awe the highest ranks of visitors. This is evident in the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), a 75-meter-long ballroom made entirely of mirrors.

The palace also witnessed global history – the Treaty of Versailles, which put an end to World War I, was signed here. Speaking of history, Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI (of guillotine fame) lived here. The queen was given her own little hamlet at the edge of the estate, which was modeled after the idyllic village of Chantilly.

For the pièce de résistance, bask in the royal gardens, complete with flowering plants, towering trees, winding pathways, Baroque fountains steeped in mysticism, and – of course – a 1.8-kilometer-long Grand Canal. You can catch the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens (depending on the day you visit). The first show is a synchronized performance of water set to classical music, while the latter lets you wander through the gardens with a royal court-approved soundtrack dancing through the air.
