Reduced ticket price to Versailles

I have some students on my trip and I saw where they have a reduced or free ticket at Versailles. Can anyone tell me if this is just for French students or European citizens? My students will have their passports to verify age. I really just want to make sure we know how much it will cost. Thank you!

It is for all EU residents under 26.

but: "Groupes scolaires (5 à 30 personnes) y compris les personnels et enseignants les accompagnant: Gratuit"

It means scolar group from 5 people are all free... but don't know really the conditions.. you should call them.

As Janet says, all under 18 have free entry, in addition EU students up to age 26 also free....


Free admission - -

Admission to the permanent collections of the Palace (Grand Apartments, Hall of Mirrors, etc.), the Trianon Palaces, Marie-Antoinette’s Estate, the temporary exhibitions plus the audio guides is free for:

under-18s, young people under 26 years old who are residents of the European Union, schoolchildren, teachers assigned to a French establishment bearing their “Pass Education”, disabled persons and their accompanying adult, and French job-seekers on presentation of documentary proof dating from less than 6 months before, etc.

If you are entitled to free admission, when you arrive at the Palace go directly to the principal entrance with your documentary proof.

It will cost them €15 each, if they don't qualify in the lists given above. This is the price charged for the entrance to the chateau at the main ticket desk. Most other places in Paris and the "ticket" office across the road from Versailles Rive-Gauche station will charge €18, a €3 mark up.
