Your time in France is not complete without a visit to the world-renowned Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles), located just 15 miles (25 km) southwest of Paris. This impressive estate, built by Louis XIV as a symbol of absolute monarchy, boasts extravagant facades, elaborate furnishings and the magnificent 2,000-acre (800-hectare) Gardens of Versailles (Jardins de Versailles).
You have two options for getting to Versailles. Take a day trip to Versailles from Paris, or, if you’re already staying in Versailles, meet your guide and head straight to the palace and gardens. Make sure you book the right tour by choosing your correct departure location.
If you’re staying in Paris, escape the busy city and enjoy a relaxing trip to Versailles. Take a half-day or full-day trip to take advantage of all that Versailles has to offer. The Versailles Small-Group Day Trip from Paris offers convenient round-trip car transportation.
