Skip the Line: Palace of Versailles Tour with Night Fountain Show

See the beauty of the Palace of Versailles, one of France's most-visited tourist attractions, with skip-the-line access and a magical night fountain show.

Begin your half-day tour with a visit to the opulent palace with your knowledgeable guide. Learn how this was the setting for many important moments in French history when it was the center of power in the 17th and 18th centuries. At the same time, it was the private home of the royal family, as you'll see when you tour the King's and Queen's Apartments and the Royal Chapel. The much-photographed Hall of Mirrors was both a hallway connecting parts of the palace, and a meeting place for the family and the nobility who visited them.

At the conclusion of your palace tour, receive tickets for the night fountain show from your guide. Enjoy some time before the show begins to continue admiring the palace, or to visit the City of Versailles for some shopping or to get dinner (own expense) in one of the atmospheric restaurants.

At the appointed time, make your way back to the Gardens of Versailles to watch as the ornate fountains come to life with a light show timed to coincide with the musical program. The gardens and fountains alike are illuminated and set to glorious classical music, making the experience truly magical. Should you fancy a romantic garden picnic, pick up some wine and cheese in the City of Versailles before the show.

Clothilde was an excellent guide...she was humorous, knowledgeable, fiercely protective of the group's space to ensure all of us had good views of the exhibits. The tour is a bit short as it does not cover the Queen's apartment and Trianon. The group size was at the maximum 30 people but Clothilde ensured that all questions were answered.

Gorgeous night of fountains, bubbles, fire fountains, mists and classical music amongst countless flowers and tall mysterious trees. Definitely do this if you can!

This was our second time to Versailles and it was nice to go into the palace later in the day, not so many people during our tour. Because of that, we got to truly enjoy the beauty of the Hall of Mirrors. The fountain show at night was spectacular! How beautiful, everything was lit up so beautifully, and so romantic!! A must see!

Our guide, Pauline, was a real character and made the history of the Kings and the Palace very entertaining. We enjoyed our tour a lot and later the fountains and gardens were beautiful and really worth seeing.
