• Think ahead. Pre-book your Versailles tickets, this sought-after destination is known for lengthy queues. Booking in advance grants access to the ticket holder's line, which is much faster than the hour-long queue for those buying onsite.
• Versailles by night. If you have the time to spare, consider an overnight stay. Held mainly in summer, Château’s decadent opera and alfresco events offer an evening of old-world glamour.
• If the shoe fits. Tours of the palace mean one thing - lots of walking. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
• Visit the King’s other garden. Visit the Potager du Roi, the king’s personal vegetable garden to admire the garden layout that still remains since Louis XIV’s time.
The high season in the summer months sees hordes of tourists enter the palace gates. The low season of winter is more relaxed, however wet and windy weather can be a dampener.
The attraction remains open for the majority of the year, closing its doors each Monday for maintenance and on the 1st of January, 1st of May and the 25th of December only. Versailles ticket admission begins from 9 am to beat the crowds.
We recommend buying Versailles skip-the-line tickets in advance to avoid long queues and waiting times.
