Re: Ticket on summer weekend-palace of versailles
I visited Versailles on a Saturday morning in late October 2007 and the inside of the palace was already crowded at 9.45am so be prepared. Its about a 500 metre walk from the train station. Cant remember the exact price of the RER ticket. Maybe 5.00-6.00EUR return each. We purchased our Versailles ticket at the Office Tourisme near the entrance to avoid the queues. There was a small surcharge for doing this but we walked straight in. I think combined palace/garden entry during the high season is around 25.00EUR. I think students may be free.
The Grand Musical Fountain display tickets have to be purchased separately and they can sell out in advance. 8.00EUR adults and 6.00EUR children. My understanding is that the gardens remain open to the public during the displays. We had to pay for garden admission in order to access Marie Antoinette's Estate, which is well worth seeing, although we missed seeing the interior of the Petite Trianon due to ongoing renovation work. Your children will love Marie Antoinette's Hamlet. It is just beautiful.
Plan to spend a whole day. The grounds are extensive and we were worn out at the end. There are golf buggies for hire (20.00EUR).
