Making the Most of Your Visit to the Palace of Versailles

If you are planning on a holiday in Paris, one of the biggest must-see attractions is the Palace of Versailles. Versailles is located 19 kilometres (12 miles) west of Paris and was home to the French Monarchs during the 17th and 18th centuries. Exploring the massive palace and its surrounding gardens can be an overwhelming experience. Fortunately, there are several options for tours that will take all the stress out of your visit.

Choosing the Right Tour

There are several options for guided tours on Versaillestickets.com that will fit your individual preferences. Here is what each tour offers so you can make the best possible choice.

Guided Tour (without transport)

This tour will provide you with quick access to the Palace, where a multilingual tour guide will take you through the many rooms, hallways and gardens of Versailles, sharing with you the stories of the people who resided there. Simply make your own way to Versailles and meet your guide underneath the Louis XIV statue before the tour starts.

Guided Tour (with transport)

This tour includes everything from the previous tour but also includes transport to and from Versailles included in the price. An air-conditioned coach will pick you up from the Hotel Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel, 18 Av. de Suffren, 75015 Paris, France, at the scheduled time, then drive you 45 minutes to Versailles, where you will meet your guide. After your visit, the coach will take you back to the same location in Paris.

Audio-Guided Tour (with transport)

This tour is perfect for those who wish to explore Versailles at their own pace. An air-conditioned coach will take you from Paris to Versailles, where you will be provided with an audio guide in your chosen language. You can then explore the palace and grounds of Versailles on your own while the audio guide fills you in on the stories behind each location.

Private Guided Tour (with transport)
