Why to visit Palace De Versailles

A historical monument with hidden treasures, amazing murals, manicured gardens, and much more!

Landscaped gardens, unique décor, a beautiful terrace, and a wonderful collection of Renaissance artwork adorn this massive and awesome structure. For the past 30 years, this amazing location has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is also regarded as one of the most significant achievements of 17th-century French art. The palace now has almost 2,300 rooms, each of which is individually designed.

The Palace of Versailles (Chateau de Versailles) was built lavishly by Louis XIV, often known as the Sun King, and was once a simple hunting lodge. Versailles is adorned to exemplify royal opulence, with 700 chambers adorned with frescoed ceilings and carvings, as well as the Versailles Gardens (Jardins de Versailles), which are brimming with geometrically constructed walks and fountains. A trip to France isn't complete without taking in the splendour. 

Special Tip

Visiting all 700 rooms of the palace would take days, so a Versailles guided highlights tour is the best option—tours range from skip-the-line access to private and small-group excursions that cover the palace's history. Also, for first-time tourists, I recommend booking combo excursions that include visits to Versailles, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre (or the town of Giverny).
