Visit Chateau de Versailles

Once a hunting lodge for the royal family, the Palace of Versailles (or Chateau de Versailles in France) has become the greatest monument of European absolutism, the UNESCO listed World Heritage site, and one of the most visited tourist attractions in France.

Versailles in France is strongly connected with one of the greatest events in French history - the French Revolution, as well as the names of 2 probably the most famous French monarchs: King Louis the Great who expanded the complex and moved the royal court here from the capital, and Queen Marie Antoinette, associated with the decay of the French monarchy.

Versailles attractions

The complex includes the main Palace, two smaller palaces, lavish English and French Versailles gardens, and occupies the total territory of 7 hectares. The central axis of the symmetrical French gardens is a mile-long Grand Canal which is set to reflect the sunset and to conduct the massage of "the power of humanity and the king over nature".

Some 1,400 fountains distributed all over the territory of the complex are worth special attention. Don't miss out on Neptune's and Appolo's Fountains during your visit! The latter was actually built to commemorate the glory of the Sun King - Louis XIV. The extravagant interior of the main Palace is a must when visiting Versailles. It contributes to the long-lasting perception of the complex as the model of the ideal royal residence.

Probably, the most famous room of the palace is the Hall of Mirrors that extends for more than 230 feet and includes 17 huge mirrors opposite the 17 windows overlooking the gardens. This is exactly the place where the Treaty of Versailles was signed during World War I.

Trip to Versailles

During your guided tour of Versailles, see the main Palace from both inside and outside, including the famous Hall of Mirrors, walk around beautiful gardens and admire some of the most spectacular fountains.
