Meet your guide at the bottom of the gardens of Versailles, by the gate on the right-hand side by the Grand Canal. You can see the Grand Canal easily from the terrace behind the palace. Walk towards it on the right side of the gardens, you will see a railing that separates the gardens from the park. The right-hand gate is called La Grille de la Petite Venise. Your guide will be waiting there and will be wearing their guide card around their neck on an orange lanyard. IMPORTANT! You will need to purchase a ticket to enter the gardens of Versailles, as you need to cross the gardens to reach the gate that leads to the Domain of Marie-Antoinette. Please allow yourself plenty of time, ticket lines can be long and it is about a 15 minute walk through the gardens to reach the gate. This tour is best suited to guests who are already in Versailles visiting the palace and gardens in the morning, or guests who have previously visited and know the palace and gardens and wish to explore more.Open in Google Maps ⟶
