What to expect

Visit the Palace of Versailles in a half-day with this excursion including round-trip transportation from Paris, skip-the-line access and audioguide. This introduction tour to Versailles will allow you to marvel at this former hunting lodge transformed into a royal chateau by King Louis XIV in the 1660s!

Meet us at our agency close to the Eiffel Tower and let us transport you back, to the Golden Age of France on a trip to the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and emblem of French royalty and extravagance.

After a 45 minutes coach ride to Versailles, you will skip the long ticket-booth-line with fast access and collect your audioguide to visit the interior of the palace. You will have about 2 hours to visit both the palace and the gardens. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the center of royal and political power until the French Revolution in 1789 which saw Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette forced to return to the capital. You will discover the State apartments of the King and Queen, the Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors, the epitome of French opulence: three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors line the gold-adorned hall and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

You will also have the opportunity to marvel at the manicured gardens “à la française”, which mirrors the splendor of the interior. Designed by the French landscaper André Le Nôtre in 1661 for King Louis XIV, the 2,000-acre park is an architectural expanse of perspectives, parterres, fountains and groves that since its inception has defined what a French garden should be.

Optional: From 3 April to 31 October, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, you can attend the Musical Gardens or the Musical Fountains Show. The access has an additional cost. If you plan to visit during this period, please select the corresponding option.
