Discover the home of a succession of French kings who lived and reigned at the palace, and continued to embellish it for years.

One of the palace’s most prominent features is the spectacular Hall of Mirrors. Gilded bronze statues stand amongst crystal chandeliers and giant mirrors that reflect the light flowing in through Versailles’ high windows. The State Apartments are another firm favorite.

Then, experience the French Gardens, where manicured lawns and lush groves await. You can also breathe in the aromatic scents of Versailles Orangery, which is filled with orange, lemon, palm, oleander, plum and pomegranate trees (some of which are over 200 years old).

    The Palace was wonderful and definitely worth seeing. We were given audio guides which did give some information from room to room, but could have given a lot more information.

    I was unable to meet the van/bus at either location. I had to call the tour operator to find location and then driver had already left. I ended up paying Uber drive out of pocket to drive me to Versailles. I then had to track down guide and ask for tickets. Guide told me to look for her at exit at 4pm to find van to ride back (which I had paid for) and was unable to find her so had to pay Uber again.

    It was rainy and chilly, still mobs in line a mile long. A bit of a wait for "skip the line", but worth the price to skip the mile. Rain paused for gardens and fountains, so overall great experience. Note that group tour entered in the middle of the palace tour. Ask for History and Daughters. Host wasn't clear about that. Also note, fountain show starts at 15:30, not 15:00
