  • Benefit from priority access to visit the sumptuous Palace of Versailles
  • Admire the gorgeous Musical Fountains (depending on the day of the visit)
  • Discover the Grand and Petit Trianon as well as the atypical Queen's Hamlet
  • Stroll freely in the marvelous gardens of Versailles

You will take advantage of our time-stamped passport ticket to visit the Domaine de Versailles in complete freedom. Equipped with an audio-guide, you will explore at your own pace the Palace of Versailles, the gardens with the Grandes Eaux Musicales, or the Musical Gardens (depending on the day of your visit). You will end your day by discovering the charming Trianons, including the atypical Queen's Hamlet.

Go to the Bar of the Palace of Versailles, where you can pick up your audio-guide. Priority access will allow you to fully enjoy your day and discover the complete history of this palace. Originally a former hunting lodge, it was during the reign of Louis XIV that Versailles took on its splendor. To show the power of his reign, the King designed a place to live in his emblem image: the sun! Equipped with your audio-guide, you will discover many rooms of the Château, such as the Grands Appartements or the famous Hall of Mirrors, whose gilding will not fail to dazzle you and whose 357 mirrors highlight its grandeur. Your audio-guide will provide you with anecdotes and fascinating stories that will allow you to imagine life in the Sun King's court. 

After admiring the splendor of the different rooms of the Château, you will be able to stroll through the gardens. Take the time to walk through the gardens created by Le Nôtre, King Louis XIV's gardener, which are just an extension of the beauty of the castle.  You will see magnificent statues, groves, fountains, and flowerbeds. You will even be able to attend the marvelous spectacle of the Musical Gardens or the Grandes Eaux Musicales, which will finish conquering you (included according to the chosen day of visit). This walk will, of course, be accompanied by audio commentaries that will tell you the story of the most beautiful garden in France.

With your audio guide, take time to discover Trianons located at the back of the park of the Palace of Versailles. After visiting the Grand Trianon dedicated to the different kings of France, you can discover the Domaine de Marie-Antoinette. You will find the Petit Trianon where the Queen liked to receive, and the Hamlet located a few minutes walk away. This haven of peace was the privileged place of Marie-Antoinette, who was attached to a simple life far from the splendors of the royal court. Its particular style and rustic setting will charm you too.

You will be able to take full advantage of your day to visit the whole of the Domaine de Versailles and walk if you wish in the center of the city of Versailles.
