So beautiful. Could have spent another day to explore the gardens. We went all the way down to the lake with rowboats and rented a boat for the kids. We rented bikes to bike town to Marie Antoinette’s house. That was the highlight I think....More
We’ve been before, but this time the gardens were at their brilliant best. We paid a reasonable price to go on a day when a Jardins Musicaux show was on. It was amazing, with fountains seeming to dance in time to classical music. It helped...More
This property has got to be seen to be believed. It is worth the wait. Take the audio guide and be prepared to spend the day in and around the palace. The various rooms have so much history to them and you cannot help but...More
If you want a taste of the French royal life you should definitely visit the palace of Versailles. It is huge and the rooms from centuries ago are kept in pristine condition. The halls of mirrors are impressive and the gardens are huge.
We stayed in Versailles for 3 days, the minimum number needed to explore the palace, its gardens, and the surrounding town. I bought 2-day tickets for the buildings ahead at the airport-a worthwhile thing to do to avoid long lines later. These tickets get you...More
We took the private tour which was outstanding. Our guide provided interesting information in every room and it was fantastic to just have our 7 person group there and not deal with the MOBS of people in the rest of the palace.
A magnificent palace - the state apartments show beautiful paintings illustrating the history and building of the Palace of Versailles, and the French monarchy who resided here. The Hall of Mirrors is located after you finish the state apartments (though I wish they commented more...More
How on earth the French kings thought they'd get away with spending that much money on themselves amazes me, but because they did we have this astonishing palace and gardens to visit.
In some ways it's a bit like a trip to Disneyland - it's...More
I don't want to discourage anyone from visiting this remarkable historic site, and the French ministry of Culture deserves tons of praise for maintaining it for posterity. But my visit brought to mind the old joke: if the party planning has the Germans doing he...More

I just visited the Versailles 1.5 weeks ago and I definitely would recommend that you visit the palace first and then only the gardens. The visit in the palace would take you about 2 hours, and do try to start from the bottom and work your way up to the 1st floor. Somehow the flow of the paintings and story line will be much better with its climax at the just before the halls of mirror. So post that, it's just nice to take a stroll out in the gardens and enjoy a relaxing lunch at the fountain area. Also timely for you to visit the Trianons and if you are already very tired, keep some change to get the buggy (petite train) to go head back to the main palace. p/s: If you are travelling alone, be sure to pipe in some Bach/Baroque music while you stroll down the gardens. It made a HUGE difference for me, enjoying the wide space.
