This was a wonderful experience for my entire family, 8 of us from 78 years old to 16 years old. We downloaded a he Palace of Versailles app from the App Store and it was the perfect free audio guide. (The line to pick up the audio guide from inside was quite long, so we decided to use our own). Will definitely make a point to come back to visit.

Great palace lots of things to see there. You’ll need a whole day if you wish to explore everything in details.
