I really think that taking a bike tour of Versailles before walking into the Chateau of Versailles is the best way to get the lay of the land and see as much of the grounds as possible within one day. Otherwise you need at least two, if not three days to really see Versailles on foot.

Versailles spans over 2,000 acres and is a full enough day without walking between locations on the grounds. A bike tour of Versailles is a great way to get around quickly and see as much of the sites as possible with a guide who knows how to get around. As disclosed in the video, I used to work for Bike About Tours and do get a referral (but only if you let them know when you book/get a sticker from them in Paris). My name is Jay Swanson - I'm an American writer living in Paris on an artist visa and hoping to make the city of light my home base - at least for the foreseeable future.

French Friday - Spending Your Layover in Paris
 
08:24
Do you have a layover in Paris? As long as it's at least four or five hours, you can make it into town to see some things. Six hours in Paris is ideal. (Helpful links below) Just plan for 1.5hrs of travel time between the airport and the city round trip and spend the rest of whatever you have accordingly.
