Your Experience

Travel in the Lap of Comfort with Stress-Free Round-Trip Travel from Paris

Avoid the hassle and stress of planning your travel from Paris to Versailles; with these tickets, we’ll sort out the logistics! Situated just 30 minutes outside Paris, in the village of Versailles, this elaborate complex once thrived as an epicenter of political power for the Kingdom of France. After boarding the bus at one of the convenient locations of Gare du Nord, Opera, or Champs Elysees, travel to the palace and begin your visit outdoors as you stroll along the cobblestone grounds, through the beautiful French gardens, and pass by the gorgeous Versailles fountains. Take in the grandeur of the estate’s impressive architecture as your guide explains the history of the Palace.

Enjoy Priority Access to the Exquisite Palace of Versailles with a Host and a Multilingual Audio Guide

Your host will then escort you to the Castle entrance, where you will get to bypass the tediously long queue and make your way directly into the Palace. Once inside, enjoy access to the most famous places within the Castle with your audioguide for company, providing you insight and information in up to eleven languages! Explore the ornate King and Queen's State Apartments. Learn about the French monarchy and peek into the private lives of King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. Next, make your way to the glittering Hall of Mirrors. Connecting the two aisles of the palace, the impressive hall has been deemed one of Louis XIV’s best contributions to the Palace. Historically, it is also where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919, ending WWI. Once your visit is winding down, meet up with your host and return to Paris in your own time, allowing for another activity in the afternoon, or a longer visit at Versailles.
