YVE­LINES : CH­TEAU DE VER­SAILLES France Tou­risme : En­joy a Royal Day Out at the Pa­lace of Ver­sailles Vivre un mo­ment “royal” à Ver­sailles

The Pa­lace of Ver­sailles, the es­tate of the Sun King, wel­comes mil­lions of vi­si­tors each year and re­pre­sents one of the je­wel fi­gures among France’s most pro­minent mo­nu­ments and one of the fi­nest ar­chi­tec­tu­ral crea­tions of the 17th Cen­tu­ry. Lose your­self in this ma­gni­ficent pa­lace and its mys­ti­fying gar­dens.

To help or­ga­nise your trip, France Tou­risme of­fers a full range of tours and ser­vices al­lo­wing you to make the most of both your time spent tra­vel­ling (less than 45 min. from the centre of Pa­ris by di­rect bus) and your tour of Ver­sailles with “fast-track” ti­ckets and au­dio guides in­side the castle.

The tour of Ver­sailles is or­ga­ni­sed in­to th­ree main parts: a tour of the pa­lace (Grands Ap­par­te­ments, Hall of Mir­rors, etc), a tour of the gar­dens (walk­ways, Grandes Eaux foun­tain shows, etc) and a tour of Ma­rie An­toi­nette’s es­tate (Pe­tit Tria­non, Grand Tria­non, etc). A full visit takes an en­tire day, but it’s pos­sible to visit the castle’s main at­trac­tions and the gar­dens in half that time.

Half-day: from € 42 (trans­port from Pa­ris in air-condi­tio­ned bus with a guide + fast-track en­try to the castle and gar­dens + au­dio guides). Day: from € 59 (trans­port from Pa­ris in air-condi­tio­ned bus with a guide + fast-track en­try to the castle and gar­dens with au­dio guides + mi­ni train tour + the Tria­nons). Pri­vate visit: from € 400 (1 to 4 people) Visit any one of France Tou­risme’s th­ree agen­cies, lo­ca­ted in the heart of Pa­ris and open se­ven days a week, where you can find all the in­for­ma­tion and equip­ment you’ll need for your trip (vi­sits in a pa­no­ra­mic bus, gui­ded tours, mu­seum ti­ckets, cruises, ex­cur­sions to Gi­ver­ny, Mont Saint Mi­chel) gua­ran­teeing the best prices.
