Full description
Explore the 2,000-acre grounds of the Palace of Versailles on a full-day bike tour from Paris with a skip-the-line ticket, and discover the unrivaled opulence of the Sun King’s royal residence.

Following your transfer from Paris, start the day at the farmers market in the town of Versailles. Select the produce you want for a picnic lunch later in the day, choosing from the mounds of cheeses, fresh fruits, charcuterie, and more.

Then, it’s time to cycle the landscaped grounds of the Palace, cruising effortlessly from one picturesque spot to another on lightweight aluminium bikes. Your guide will take you to the outhouse chateaux of the Petit and Grand Trianon, and show you Marie-Antoinette’s private village and farm. Pedal through sumptuous landscapes, ending with a look inside the Chateau of Versailles itself.

Here, you will be given plenty of time to focus on what interests you most, using the audio guides to explore at your leisure. Feel free to take a rapid tour in 30 minutes, or loiter for 3 hours to marvel at the Hall of Mirrors, Marie-Antoinette's bedroom, the King’s Royal chambers, and more.
