AN IDEAL DAY IN VERSAILLES IN LOW SEASON
HOW DOES A MEMBER BENEFIT FROM PRIORITY ACCESS ?
For priority access, you may advance to the beginning of the line with the security guards next to the sign “Entrée A” in the courtyard of the château. There is no priority access to get an audio guide or for the two Trianon palaces.
Attention : With the heightened anti-terrorism precautions at Versailles, all visitors must wait in the security line at the entrance to the palace courtyard. Please account for this extra time, only after which will the membership card grant you priority access.
