Versailles Palace – All areas entrance (Passport)

To product


Now you know how to visit Versailles! With this ticket you’ll have access to the palace, Marie Antoinette’s hamlet and separate estate and the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens. Find the secret passage she used when the French Revolution broke up to reach the king's room.

During its peak of maximum wealth and luxury as home of the French royal court, Versailles held more than 10,000 people, and the palace and surroundings will always be associated with extreme opulence and extravagance.
And for the final prize, the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Garden (it depends on the day you’re visiting). The former allows you to amble by the fountains and groves as the water features match with classical music. The latter gives you a courtly walk through the gardens as classical music sets the ambiance. Either way, enjoy a king-worthy evening!

How does it work?

You can pick up your tickets the day of your visit at our agency at GUIDATOURS, 10 avenue du Général de Gaulle, 78000 Versailles. We advise you to come before 11am, in order to have enough time to visit the whole Estate of Versailles.

A deposit of 20€ by audiopen will be asked and refunded when you return the audiopen at Guidatours office (before 6.00pm)

All visitors have to go through a security check. This is mandatory and at peak hours long lines may occur. Bringing an umbrella is always a good idea to protect yourself from the sun or the rain.
