  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Searching for a private taxi or train from Paris to Versailles can be inconvenient and time-consuming. Hence, book your hassle-free transport to Versailles and back travelling in an air-conditioned coach. It is the most comfortable way to commute from the city and also lets you enjoy the views that come on the way. The journey from Paris to Versailles takes roughly 45 minutes and you will have around three hours to explore the palace and gardens.

    Entrance to the Palace is not included in this package but can be bought on-site or by pre-booking. If you wish to make an advanced booking, we do have a Skip-the-line Versailles Guided Tour click here to see the details >>

    The palace is a stunning example of French art and full of royal history; Versailles was home to such notable figures as Louis XIV, also known as the Sun King and Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France. The grand rooms are abundant with luxurious elements and the corridors are lined with statues – the palace is in itself the very pinnacle of French monarchy and its excess.

    Itinerary

    Your coach stop is located at Bateaux Parisiens Car Park - Quai de Seine Port de la Bourdonnais 75007 Paris. Board your coach and enjoy the ride to Versailles.

    Once in Versailles, you will be dropped off in the palace car park, Place d’Armes, near the "Grille d'Honneur" (main gate) of Versailles. Explore the palace at leisure, either with a pre-booked ticket or by purchasing your ticket on-site. You will have approximately three hours to spend at Versailles before heading back to Paris.

    Apart from the Palace, the chateau of Versailles offers beautiful parks and French gardens. You can take a stroll through the parks of Versailles which is free for pedestrians. You can also spend your time exploring the beautiful chateau or grab a lunch at the chic food joints before deboarding the coach for the return journey.

    Your guide will inform you of the meeting point and time of departure upon disembarking the coach at Versailles.
