We went to Versailles and it is definitely worth it! And the Burlesque show I don't know ... however the CanCan show at Nouvelle Eve we like it a lot!

My point of view is totally different. If you have only 3 days in Paris and if it's only your first time I would skip Versailles to enjoy more the city and all the places that offers. Ill keep Versailles for next time as mentionned you need one full day for Versailles. In any case, in 3 days you cant see everything so you need to make some choices. Enjoy your trip!

Hi.
Versailles will take an entire day and you still will not see it all. But it's worth seeing...it is amazing! My recommendation is to buy a ticket for a guided tour of the King's apartment...this will get you into the palace with a docent at an appointed time. From the tour, you go on your own. The advantage is that you do not have to wait in that horribly long line for over an hour just to get in.

Hi Julie,
3 days for Paris is not really enough and if you visit Versailles be sure to pass a whole day there. I recommend you to leave it for another trip.
But if you really want to, you need to plan your time beforehand. Recently I came across to this tool, maybe you will find it useful.

Hi Julie,

I would recommend you to just stay in Paris, there is so much to do here and Versailles is worth to see, sure... but it's better to dedicate a full day to it. Better a future trip.

In regards of Burlesque show I am not sure, but if you want to see a very local and nice singing performance I would highly recommend the "Lapin Agile" in Montmartre.

Enjoy Paris!
