Versailles Full Day Independent Tour with Audio Guide

Your audio guide commentary will give you the time and opportunity to visit the magnificent Palace of Versailles at your own pace. Admire its Baroque architecture, artworks and elegant decoration. Relish strolling through the palace's grounds and gardens to the Trianon, or explore the charming town of Versailles beyond the palace's walls.

The Palace of Versailles stretches for more than 721,000 square feet and has more than 700 rooms!

This 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 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 of Versailles, 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.
