Versailles on a weekday

The Best Time to visit Versailles

Favorite thing: The best time to visit Versailles is actually on a weekday, after 3.30pm. Why? Simply because the annoying crowds would have thinned out by then and ticket prices are reduced . Fares are also reduced on Sunday but going there on a weekend plays havoc on your sanity. What, with snake like queues, elbows in your ribs and in your eye, can you remain sane?

Ticket Prices after 330pm
€7.50-> €5.50 ( Grand Palace)
€5-> €3 (Trianon Palaces)

The little tourist office - Versailles

How to cut Qs at the Palace

Favorite thing: It pays to be nosy sometimes. Really, just before I entered the Versailles Palace, I nosed around an obscure tourist office just outside of the palace gates. Since there was hardly anyone there, I flooded the poor clerk with all sorts of annoying questions. It paid off. In a bid to get rid of me, she advised me to grab a "passport" (€20) that would allow:
-> entry to multiple palace areas and all the Trianon Gardens
->priority access ( no **** queues! )
-> Usage of an audio guide.
Just the thing for a restless person like me. I grab it of course and later recalled frustrated sods queuing up for the same thing at the Palace itself.

Of course, you don't need the passport if you have the musuem pass. The pass covers both the Trianon palaces and the Chateau.
