Make your way to central Versailles—about a 30-minute train ride from Paris—and meet your host near the Palace of Versailles.
Collect your audio guide, and listen as your host shares tips on touring. Then, begin your independent tour. As you explore, visit at your own pace and gain insight into 18th-century royal court life in France.
Stroll the Hall of Mirrors and admire the opulent suites and royal quarters. Head into the gardens to continue your visit. On summer Saturdays, Sundays, and bank holidays (April to October) your ticket includes the Fountain Show. On summer Fridays and Tuesdays (April to October) your ticket includes the Musical Fountain Show.
When you’re done exploring the palace and grounds, return your audio guide and exit the palace grounds to conclude your visit.
