Our visit to the Chateau was well worth the effort but I wish I had allowed more time to tour the gardens, inside the architecture is wonderful but as explained by our guide the internal fitments are only a representation as everything was stripped from the building. during the revolution. The gardens themselves are beautiful but unless you allow the... More

I'm fan of the history, have red many books about Versailles, so my expectation was high. Building itself is outstanding as well as the gardens, but everything inside was destroyed or stolen during revolution, so the rooms are rather empty of equipped by replicas. I expected more.

It was a good to be. It was a huge space to walk. It better to take a baggy to journey outside.

The Chateau is lovely but only a portion is open to tourists. We went through in less than an hour. It was busy but not packed. There wasn't as much furniture for the rooms as I had expected. It was hard for me to envision how the rooms were really used-I'd hoped to get more of an intimate look at... More

Of course the building of this palace cost loads of money, but the palace is not really attractive. Too many decorations are there and make my eyes sore. Every room is glittering, and most rooms look the same. Not a place of aesthetic quality. More annoying are the written descriptions in this palace. There's an exhibition of the history of... More

I have experienced Versailles several times throughout the years and each time the crowd control/tourist routing becomes a bit easier and the rooms serve as a great teacher of French History and of course, Versailles. It can be crowded at times but it is spacious enough that any traveler can set their own pace on the journey through the Chateau.... More

First of all you can spend less money and time if you followed my advice: come at Sunday and museums will be free and come inside with your car because of very large distances or buy a ticket for the bus, and the last one - come to the great palace in the evening after 16:30 and it will be...

Wow wow wow! What a palace and amazing grounds. Well worth visiting. Best to take the train from Paris. It's 3.55 Euro for a single. The palace is incredibly grand and vast so wear practical shoes for walking. I would suggest getting there early so you can visit the palace and the surrounding grounds which are included in the passport... More

Firstly I would say, take a tour with a guide. They have been doing this for years and they are full of facts that you could not possibly know without one. The palace is exquisite and under restoration from benefactors such as Dior. The gardens are perfection. Booked through Viator and had "Roseanne" as our guide.
