Tiqets – Highly Recommend

I always buy tickets on Tiqets when I need help getting them on the official website. We’ve used it many times, and no issues with them, and it’s very convenient.

  • Not as popular as the other channels, so there are more available time slots if you are looking for last-minute tickets
  • Same price as you buy on the official website
  • part of the Airbnb investment venture
  • It has free cancellation; you can book first and decide later
  • Friendly User Interface, much better than museum websites
  • Official partner of Versailles, no scam

You can try Get Your Guide and Viator if you prefer other channels.

Can you buy Versailles tickets at the door?

You can buy the tickets at the door, but there might be a big queue, and the museum could ask you to wait when there are too many people.

I would not recommend buying the tickets at the door since standing in the ticket queue wastes time. It’s not wise to do so if you travel since time is very precious.

When is the best time to visit The Palace of Versailles?

It’s best to start your day early to make the most of your trip. Please know that getting to the palace takes around 60 to 90 minutes.

I suggest you have a good night of sleep and grab some food at the supermarket on the day or before the day you leave. Don’t forget to have a bottle of water with you!

What to bring and what should I wear when visiting Versailles?

It’s allowed to bring food, so prepare good food for yourself to enjoy a lunch break in the park with an outdoor picnic. I prepared sandwiches, water, and a picnic mat.

No need to dress formally, be sure to have comfortable shoes because you need to walk a lot for the day, especially if you arrange the trip yourself.
