The Sun King’s palace at Versailles is so vast that three different ASTEL stations rent rowboats, bikes, and electric golf carts to visitors looking to explore the grounds. Bicycles are available for rent by the hour, half day, or full day, and provide the most versatile way to tour the entire village. The golf carts are a better option for those seeking a more leisurely excursion; however, the carts turn off automatically if the driver diverges from a set route. Available for as little as 30 minutes, the boats are a great way to experience Versailles’s manmade lakes.
Rent a bike on Sunday morning, and ride to the village market on Place du Marché, where you can purchase fresh local produce and artisan cheeses for an afternoon picnic.
