You pay a lot, that is a fact. But don't save on the audio guide! It makes the museum 100 times more interesting. The museum is not the whole castle. Most of all there are paintings and that's when the audio guide is the best...More

Beautiful chateau/palace, let down by the poor organisation. We pre-booked tickets and still queued for 45 minutes for no apparent reason. Signage is not great, rooms very crowded with no control. Worth a visit, but be prepared to queue, a lot, and be hot and...More

Although we arrived early and didn't have to queue for long, the palace was soon very busy. Large tour groups thought it acceptable to push in front of children to take their photos and selfies. The great hall of mirrors was impressive if you ignored...More

We went on a Thursday morning at 9:30 am with tickets already in hand. There was still a very long line to enter the palace. Once in the palace it was jammed packed full of people. I wonder if there is a time when its...More

Simply outstanding. We had planned the visit for weeks following the TV Show and it did not disappoint. There is too much to see in a day and in hindsight we would have queued for the noddy train as we couldn't walk to Marie Antoinette's...More

You can just show up. The lines are worse in the morning, so I'd wait until after lunch to do the main palais.

Hi toverturf714 As far as I'm concerned the gardens are completely free. However, you have to pay for a bike or golf cart to get around the gardens, or you can just walk. And if you only want to see the gardens, go on a... More
