    Versailles Palace and Gardens: Enjoy a self-guided audio tour of the main Palace of Versailles, including the Hall of Mirrors, Grand Apartments of the King and Queen, and more. Then, stroll around the magnificent Gardens of Versailles.

    1-Day Passport: Enjoy access to the entire Versailles estate over one day. Explore the Palace and Gardens of Versailles; behold the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon domains; and see Marie-Antoinette’s Estate, with its rustic-style Hamlet, inspired by her idealized vision of a French village.

    2-Day Passport:
Make the most of Versailles’ scale and grandeur with two consecutive days of access to the entire estate. Visit the opulent Palace and Gardens of Versailles; stroll around the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon domains; and enjoy the Musical Fountains Show.

    Please note: the Versailles gardens are not accessible on those days when the Musical Gardens and Musical Fountains shows are on. Check the Itinerary for the show calendar.


    1-Day Passport and Musical Fountains Show or Musical Gardens Ticket: Explore the Palace of Versailles, amble through the Gardens of Versailles, wonder at the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon domains; and stroll through Marie-Antoinette’s Estate with its Hamlet, modeled on a romanticized vision of a Norman village with cottage-style houses framing a lake. Entrance to the Musical Fountains or Musical Gardens show is included. Check the Itinerary for the show calendar.

    First, it costs $4 from downtown Paris to Versailles. So, you will have to buy a ticket from the machine and not use your Oyster card. We got stuck at Versailles because the turnstiles wouldn't let us out. The city of Versailles has wider streets so you don't feel as cramped,
