What You'll Do
  • Visit the magnificent Palace of Versailles on a trip from Paris
  • Marvel at the stunning architecture and ornate decoration
  • Learn the history of Louis XIV's palace with an audioguide
  • Admire the beauty of the palace gardens
Skip the long lines and enjoy a tour of the Palace of Versailles on your own, with the aid of an audioguide. View the Royal Apartments, Hall of Mirrors, Queen's Private Apartment, and more with free time to explore the gardens before returning to Paris.
What to Expect
The Palace of Versailles, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for 30 years, was the residence of Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI, and their royal courts, from 1682 until the French Revolution in 1789.

On this full-day tour from Paris you’ll have the opportunity to explore the palace and grounds at your own pace with an audioguide.

Admire the Baroque architecture, artwork, sumptuous decoration, and the furniture created by the greatest craftsmen of the age. Take a stroll around the palace's grounds and gardens to the Trianon, or explore the pretty town of Versailles beyond the palace's walls.

The Palace of Versailles covers an area of more than 721,000 square feet and boasts more than 700 rooms. With your audioguide you’ll find your way around the vast structure as you learn about the history of the palace, and immerse yourself in its opulence.

Your ticket provides priority access to the palace's most popular rooms, including the King's Grand Apartment, with 7 salons, each dedicated to a different god, and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of the rooms of the King. You’ll see the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette.

Marvel at the stunning Hall of Mirrors, a huge room in which guests were received and impressed, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet long, it was designed to amaze the visitors of Louis XIV, the Sun King, and boasts 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's gardens.

Explore the gardens of Versailles and admire the more than 200 statues, fountains, ponds, flower beds, and woodlands. In the summer, a range of activities is staged in the gardens, such as the Grandes Eaux, when the fountains are set to dance to music.
