VERSAILLES TICKETS: WHERE AND HOW TO BUY YOUR TICKET TO SKIP THE LINE
Versailles tickets. To visit the Palace of Versailles you must prepare yourself to immerse yourself in 18th-century France among sumptuous rooms and immense parks.
To avoid arriving at the end of the day with the feeling of not having seen everything, organization is needed first of all and the visit starts well if you buy tickets first, avoiding wasting time by queuing at the entrance.
The advantage of having a ticket with priority access is to have more time to understand what to visit immediately and which parts of the Palace do not miss.
In this post I have gathered all the information to book tickets for the Palace of Versailles.
VERSAILLES TICKETS: WHERE TO BUY THEM
You can buy your tickets to the Versailles Castlein three ways:
1 – at the ticket office, but in this case you have to queue to enter (and you have to be very patient!).
2 – on the Palace of Versailles: Access All Areas
This way you’ll skip the line, but be careful: don’t be late, otherwise you’ll have to queue. The advantage of online purchase is that you can enter immediately, at the time you chose when you booked your ticket.
3 – choosing to book a guided tour or combining the journey to and from Paris.
The possibilities are many and with different costs, you can find them on the page dedicated to Versailles Tickets and Tours
Visit the Palace of Versailles with a guide that will allow you to see the most important works, but do not exclude the possibility of combining the entrance ticket with the transport to the Palace to avoid having to worry about the journey, since Versailles is located at about half an hour by train from central Paris.
