Versailles Full Day Independent Tour with Audio Guide

This ticket will allow you to discover the entire Versailles Estate on your own. You can visit the Palace of Versailles in complete freedom while listening to fascinating comments via audio guides. You will then have the rest of the day to stroll through the gardens, visit the King's Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon and the picturesque Queen's Hamlet.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for 30 years, the Palace of Versailles was once the residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts, from 1682 until the French Revolution in 1789.

Your audio guide commentary will allow you to visit the magnificent Palace of Versailles at your own pace. Admire its Baroque architecture, artworks, sumptuous decoration, and the furniture created by the greatest craftsmen of the age. Enjoy strolling through the palace's grounds and gardens to the Trianon, or explore the pretty town of Versailles beyond the palace's walls.

The Palace of Versailles stretches for more than 721,000 square feet and boasts more than 700 rooms. Your audio guide will help you find your way during your visit, tell you about the history of the palace, and immerse you in its unique atmosphere.

Your ticket will give you access to the palace's most famous rooms, including the King's Grand Apartment, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.) and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others.

Also see the stunning Hall of Mirrors, a huge room in which guests were received and impressed, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet long, it was designed to amaze the Sun King's (Louis XIV) visitors and is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's beautiful gardens.

During this full-day tour, spend time discovering the gardens of Versailles and admire their artworks (more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds and woodland. In Summer, a range of activities is staged in the gardens, such as the "Grandes Eaux," when the fountains are made to dance to music.
