Our party of four had the pre-purchased "Full Access Day Passes" that does "Not Mean you Skip the Cue", just the cash ticket line. We were instructed to arrive at 8:45 am for the 9:00am opening. We arrived early at 8:30 and there was still...More

The chateau doesn’t open until 9 am but I highly recommend that you get there by 8.50 or so. We had planned on being there at 9, but the RER was closed and we had to take an alternative, longer ride. From the station, there...More

Lovely place to visit. Its very crowded and the food + drink are over priced. Definitely a must see though.

Once again, buy your tickets well in advance. Hiring a tour the only way to go. You get to see behind the scenes and get faster entry. The palace is spectacular, as are the gardens.They would be in the top ten of our trip to...More

Beware! Today there were queues of up to 2.5 hours to see the chateau so make sure you REALLY want to visit this place. A tip - visit the gardens first - allow up to three hours for this (maybe starting around midday or even...More

Took over 2 hours to get in but obviously once in it was worth it. Best to stay overnight in Versailles - great city! - and do gardens and house separately as a very exhausting attraction!

The Palace is beautiful but lots of the same. The gardens & fountains are outstanding & there is a lively little restaurant in one area. However...the book in advance to avoid queuing tip is nonsense. My hubby & I booked ahead but still had to...More

Sorry for the late reply. I bought our tickets when we arrived and there was no queue (for the tickets). We didn't do the tour of the kings apartment so I'm not sure,but even if you book in advance you still have to get in... More

Sorry I can't help. We arrived early and were stunned by the crowds wishing to go into the buildings, hence just doing the gardens. That said, they were pretty awesome.

You can just show up. The lines are worse in the morning, so I'd wait until after lunch to do the main palais.
