Versailles Tour from Paris


About Versailles

Versailles is a chateau, situated at what is today’s suburban Paris. It was built during the 1600’s and it’s design was copied a lot during that time since a lot of people admired it’s architecture. Home to Louis XIV from 1682, it is symbolic of the riches and wealth of the monarchs. It was originally built by Louis XIII as a stone and brick lodge and was later expanded by Louis XIV into what it looks like today.

When it was occupied, the palace consisted of 5,000 pieces of furniture and 6,000 pieces of paintings. The Treaty of Versailles was signed in the Palace during World War 1.

How to get to Versailles from Paris?

Getting to Versailles is the easiest by train and bus.

Paris to Versailles by Bus

Bus number 171 plies from the stop, “Pont de Sevres.” You can board this bus after purchasing the tickets and should take about 30 minutes for you to reach the Palace. We recommend you to purchase your bus tickets before boarding the bus, since the tickets cost more once you have boarded the bus.

Take the ‘Line C’, and depending on your boarding station, it should take you about 60-90 minutes to reach the palace. The Palace of Versailles is a 10-12 minute walk from the Versailles station.

Versailles Fountain Show & Versailles Gardens

During one of these shows you can witness the water swaying to period music. If you are planning to go on a Wednesday, you will be able to witness the Fountains Night Show.
