Palace of Versailles

Welcome to Marie Antoinette's world! Visiting the Palace of Versailles is truly an amazing experience. The luxury inside the palace is absolutely ridiculous: ceiling fresco paintings, sculptures, glass chandeliers, massive pieces of silver furniture ... These people had lost their heads...literally.

Bring comfortable shoes because the gardens are really vast and it is about a 30 minute walk from the Palace to the Trianon. You also don’t want to miss the Queen’s Hamlet, a small amusement village where the queen played at being a shepherdess.

You can get to Versailles easily by train from the center of Paris and it will take you less than 1 hour. Go early in the morning and buy your ticket in advance so you will avoid the huge lines.
