Today, you can walk in the footsteps of the last French monarchs without having to worry about the guillotine! The palace is yours to explore. The most famous of its more than 700 rooms is undoubtedly the spectacular Hall of Mirrors, which is so grand that it is still used today for France to host visiting Heads of State. The royal bedchambers are also places of unrivalled luxury. You will be open-mouthed as you move from incredible room to incredible room.
Outside, the gardens are every inch a match for the opulence of the palace itself. First designed by the famed French landscape architect, André Le Nôtre, they are the ultimate expression of the French Garden style. Extending for almost 2,000 acres, they are home to an incredible 200,000 trees, 210,000 annually planted flowers, 50 fountains and more than 5 kilometres of canal! Definitely gardens fit for a king.
The gardens are the venue for the amazing Fountain Show or the Musical Gardens, where you can enjoy the landscaped surroundings accompanied by music. You can add either of these ticket options at checkout to round off your tour of the Palace of Versailles.
