Here are 5 reasons why coming to Versailles in January, February or March is the best.
A royal winter awaits you in 2018...
1 - You will avoid the crowd
In a touristic city like Versailles, there will inevitably be a lot of people during the summer months.
Coming to Versailles during winter means:
Less waiting at the Palace
There is usually less people at the Palace in winter, which means
less queuing time to enter!

Smaller guided tours
Discovering museums you don't get to see during the summer
Because visiting the Palace during the summer usually takes the whole day, there is no time left to go and explore other parts of the city.
During winter, you will have time to truly appreciate the royal city. Go and discover the Gallery of Coaches, the Royal Tennis Court, the Lambinet Museum, or simply stroll along the streets of the old town...
Note : During school holidays of the Paris region, a lot of local families are coming to Versailles. From February 17th until March 5th, 2018, beware of the crowd!
2 - You will take the best pictures
Attention, instragramers and photo enthusiasts! Versailles in winter will give you the best photos ever...

3 - Coziness of the restaurants and cafés
Winter... the occasion to test all cafés in the city
and find out who is making the best hot chocolate!
