What You Can Expect
Redeem your voucher at the entrance of the Gardens of Versailles, and step back in time to 17th- and 18th-century France. Your independent ticket allows you to explore the world-famous gardens, designed by André Le Nôtre, on your own.
The extraordinary gardens took about 40 years to complete; appreciate just how detailed the features are as you explore the 13 different groves, the Grand Canal, the fountains and the numerous marble statues. Admire the meticulously trimmed trees and bushes, and wander off to a quiet spot to have a picnic, if you’d like (own expense).
Get the most out of your visit during the two periods a year (April 1 to May 15 and July 3 to October 30) when the groves and protected areas of the gardens are accessible for a ‘musical stroll’ – an opportunity to discover the gardens in a special Baroque setting with classical music. The music is played between 10am and 6:30pm. You can also see the musical fountains in the Bassin du Miroir every 10 minutes from 9am to 6:30pm.
You will receive a complimentary map so you can easily find your way through the gardens’ many routes.
