Overview

Enjoy the included audio guide to a UNESCO World Heritage site that's one of the most visited attractions in France
Catch your reflection in the stunning Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end WWI or bask in 250 acres of perfectly landscaped gardens

Visit: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

Unbelievable as it may seem, this complex was initially a humble brick-and-stone hunting lodge built for Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV (the Sun King) went his own way, turning it into an enormous monument to architecture, art, and the fine taste of the French monarchy. There are no half-measures in its conception or execution (it has more than 1,200 fireplaces!).

That opulence is most evident in the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), a 75m-long ballroom lined with statues and busts. It has 17 arched windows, each embellished with 21 individual mirrors. For those keeping score, that means light beams off 357 mirrors in total.

Versailles is one of the most visited attractions in France, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The audio guide that comes along with this ticket will give you all sorts of info and stories about the history of this magnificent complex.

Got the tickets in advance, and only had to be in the queue for security. Just what we needed! Would only point out that the directions at the palace aren't great. After passing through the first security gate, head straight through the large open area. The entrance gate is to the left where the time slots for entry are displayed on banners (expect a long queue here). If you arrive more than half an hour before your time slot, you will be asked to wait at a side. In addition, if you have a pushchair, keep in mind that not all areas are pushchair-friendly. For the gardens, you need to purchase a separate ticket. The entrance is at the back. So instead of queueing for the entrance to the palace as described above, there is a passage to the left. Go straight through that passage and you will be able to see the ticket counters for the gardens.

Most of the plaques were in French, not every had English to be able to read them. It was a typical palace to see, nothing was extraordinary. It was far from Paris downtown the taxi for 6 people was 75 euros. Make sure you check if your specific date allows you to access the gardens or not.
