If you’re planning a Paris itinerary, no doubt you’re also considering doing a day trip to Versailles. And why not? It’s absolutely one of the most popular sites outside Paris for day trippers.
The Palace of Versailles is open for visitors and they are currently requiring all guests to make a timed entry reservation ahead of time.
You could book a guided tour to Versailles that comes with guided transportation.
Even in the summer, consider dressing warmly, or at least warm-ish, in layers.
I recommend that you plan to visit Versailles on a Wednesday or Thursday to have the best chance to avoid the biggest crowds.
Understand that you’ll be dealing with crowds, lines at security, and in the women’s restrooms.
