What could be more enjoyable than a bike ride? Get on your bike and explore the hidden delights across the 800 hectares of the Palace Park. You'll have no problem getting to Marie-Antoinette's Estate or riding along the shaded avenues in the Park. You'll also get the best panoramic view of the Palace of Versailles that will leave you speechless.
Beyond the Palace gates are 70 kilometres of cycle paths so you can visit all the town's must-see sites. Why not park your bike at one of the 830 bicycle parking spaces and enjoy a meal in a restaurant or a break at Notre Dame market?
