Palace of Versailles

Paris, France
4.7 / 127
The palace and park ensemble in the Paris suburbs, the famous residence of the French monarchs. Versailles appeared thanks to the efforts of Louis XIV in the XVII century. Gradually, from a modest hunting castle under the supervision of architects Jules Arduin-Mansard and Louis Levo, a magnificent palace grew, which became a symbol of the era of the “King of the Sun”. Many European monarchs took Versailles as a model for the construction of their own residences.
Address:Place d'Armes, Versailles

Don't get me wrong, the palace is incredibly beautiful. However, it looks better in pictures. I preferred seeing all the intricate details of the outside. The inside was pretty but I didn't really get the feeling that the royals lived there.. Read more »

Although the palace is very impressive the parts you get to see don't tell much about the 'real' life the people had who lived there. They took out all the furniture and all that is left are pieces of art by not-so important artists. T.. Read more »

I felt like i am the part of the ancient European movies about kingdoms and their castles. It is so mesmerizing inside and outside of the palace. Definitely worth of visiting. In only 30 mins driving from Paris. You can spend 3-4 hours inside.

Fantastic museum, plan for a visit of 3-4 hrs. and make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes as you'll be walking a long time and there are almost no places to sit and take a rest.

Amazing place to visit. Well controlled and safe during CV19 times. Gardens are lovely to explore and see. Definitely MUST come and visit here if close to Paris. Parking can get busy so best to arrive early
