Versailles in June

We are planning a day trip from London in early June. We can either go Sunday afternoon or Tuesday morning. I know both are busy days because the fountains run then, but which would be better?

The day that is not raining .

They will both be crowded and busy so jus twork our schedule that's best for the other things you ameanr to see in Paris . Keep inmond in Paris many major museums close either Monday OR Tuesday .

While the palace is guaranteed to be a mosh pit, the grounds are so large they never feel crowded . Do visit the outer areas like the Grand Trianon and Marie Antionettes hamlet .

Arrive at palace BEFORE IT OPENS , with your ticket or museum pass in hand and get in the already forming line for the security . In June I would aim for at least 30-40 minutes before opening, even up to an hour ( being first ones in is quite exciting !)

Wear sturdy shoes , lots of walking the grounds and they are pebble paths

Thank you for the reply. It looks like Tuesday will work best for our schedule, so fingers crossed for no rain!
