Skip the Line at the Palace of Versailles

2,792 Reviews
Louis XIV's extravagant Palace of Versailles, where French nobility lived lavishly until France's revolution, is one of the most popular sites in the country—meaning lines can be long. Here are a few ways to avoid waiting with a skip-the-line tour.

Guided Skip-the-Line Tours
Visiting the Palace of Versailles on a guided skip-the-line tour allows you to get more out of your visit with insider commentary about the palace's long history, ornate design, and interesting cast of former residents. For something extra special, opt for a Viator VIP tour that includes access to rooms not usually open to the public.

Skip-the-Line Tours with an Audio Guide
If you prefer to explore the palace on your own but still want to learn about the various rooms as you go, from the Hall of Mirrors to the Royal Chapel, opt for a tour that includes an audio guide. You'll get narration and time to visit the gardens, just without the group experience.

Skip-the-Line Tours with Additional Versailles Experiences
Enhance your visit to Versailles by booking a tour that includes lunch on the Grand Canal or time to explore Marie Antoinette's replica French village and Petit Trianon. Another popular add-on during certain months of the year is entry to the palace's fountain night show, when you can admire the gardens illuminated after dark.
