If you are staying in Paris, then you need to get to this place. We had to spend about an hour getting to the site. The cobblestones are quite hard to walk on so wear something comfortable. You will probably need a full day here. You will pass through security when you arrive and then you will be on your... More

You'll understand why there was a revolution when you visit Versailles. Don't spend too much on a guided tour here. You can buy tickets on the chateau Versailles website and get there on the metro (and swapping to the regional line) for much less than the tours departing from Paris. Your entry ticket includes a free audio guide. The only... More

A long queue but moved quickly, staff very polite and helpful.First impression on arrival was the sheer magnificence of the building, and inside it did not disappoint. Incredibly ornate, room after room. The hall of mirrors was different from what I had imagined. There were many more paintings than appear in the numerous international photos of the hall. A well...

We took the RER train from Paris to the Palace of Versailles, unaware that it is closed on Mondays. We were allowed to enter the palace grounds for free, and take a peep on the interior through the doors. It was winter time, the gardens were bare, but we can imagine the splendour and the glory of this place. As... More

This place is incredible. The day was beautiful. There were a lot of visitors, we waited an hour to get inside. But when you enter .... you feel like in a fairy tale. We spent the whole day watching the castle and walking through the parks. Definitely must see.

I last visited Versailles palace with school 12 years ago, last time I went was in summer and this time it was -3 degrees!!! However even though it was so cold, it still didn't ruin the visit. I would advise to go for 9am as there are less queues, you will get in quickly, be prepared for lots of security... More

I highly recommend to read or watch movies about the french history especially the era before the french revolution before your visit. I mostly enjoyed the gardens more than the castel. They are extremely beautiful especially during good weather.

My daughter and I ventured to Versailles on a rainy Sunday morning. The journey by van was a tourist delight....traveling out of Paris and into the city of Versailles gave us a chance to see many sights along the way. Arriving in Versailles, our driver dropped us off for our tour. We met our scheduled guide and entered the chateau... More

The regally opulent Château de Versailles is France’s most famous palace. This was the political capital and seat of the royal court from 1682 to 1789. Once home to King Louis XIV, today it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Hall of Mirrors, in particular, is mindblowing! Other highlights include the apartments, the chapel and the gardens. The palace is... More
