You need at least two days to fully appreciate this Palace, spending time inside and in the wonderful grounds.

Versailles was my husband and I's priority while in Paris. My husband visited once before and fell in love, while I have always really wanted to go badly as I've been fascinated with Marie Antoinette since I was young. We booked our tickets in advance...More

We waited outside for 2 hours to get in and we bought tickets ahead of time (18€ a person) Unlike other attractions throughout Europe, there is no time slot. It was about 65 degrees though so it was fine to wait. There is also a...More

I'm glad we got our tickets in advance. The line for regular ticket entrance was insanely long. The Palace and apartments are great, but they're extremely crowded with everyone trying to see them. I think If I were to do it again, I'd skip the...More

We stood in a snake line for several hours on a lovely October day. Going through the Palace was tedious with large crowds, but if you divert to less-intense rooms (with battle paintings, for example), the crowds thin and your experience will be more relaxing.

This place is magnificent. We went on a Saturday and the crowds were massive, as I expected. A tip — if you go on a busy weekend, plan to visit the gardens or one of the smaller chateaus first, then go to the main chateau...More

More beautiful then you can imagine. Need a full day and more to explore the palace as well as the amazing gardens. Be prepared for sticker shock in the café or stores to buy bottled water. Other than that, amazing time & views!

Versailles Palace & gardens have been on my wife's "bucket list" of places to visit since she was a history student. In recent years, she has been reticent to visit as a result of becoming wheelchair bound, but I recently persuaded her to visit as...More
