Visit the Palace of Versailles - Half a day priority access



Enjoy the essentials of the Versailles castle at your own pace:

  • The King's Grand Apartments, a succession of lounges richly decorated rooms to the glory of the Sun King
  • The Queen's Large Apartments
  • The Hall of Mirrors: masterpiece of Versailles! 17 windows adorned with mirrors opening onto the gardens follow one another along the 73 meters of the gallery. Colbert wishing to compete with products from Venice created a factory in Paris to manufacture these mirrors of exceptional dimensions.
  • The King's Chamber which occupied the center of the castle in 1701 and which was the main framework for the king's ruling life.


Enjoy your free time to stroll the magnificent French gardens designed by Le Nôtre: nature is tamed, flowerbeds are geometric and the aisles are structured.
The fountains pools and terraces obey the laws of optical illusion, so the Grand Canal seems close when standing at the foot of the castle.


From May 22nd to October 31st, the fountains come to life and you can watch the fabulous spectacle of the great waters set to baroque music. The "Grandes Eaux de Versailles" show takes place on saturdays and sundays, the "Jardins Musicaux de Versailles" takes place from Tuesday to Friday (compulsory extra charge +10€)


When the Versailles Palace was built, the city of Versailles was a country village; today it is a suburb, some twenty kilometers southwest of Paris. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the "Ancient Régime" in France.
