  The little tourist office
by bpacker

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.
