Versailles (Château de Versailles)

Visiting the opulent Palace of Versailles is on most people’s to do lists, famous through history for its decor, design and over-the-top glamour.

The grandest and most famous chateau in France was built during the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and hosted the royal court from 1682 to 1789.

Inside, the huge palace’s 700 rooms are replete with gilded cornices, frescoed ceilings, carved details and mirrored halls. Outside, the palace is surrounded by famously formal gardens with geometrically designed walkways, fountains, canals and terraces.

There’s a lot to see at Versailles, so plan your visit based on the chateau’s four sections: the multiple-winged palace building, the vast gardens and two smaller palaces, the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon.

The highlights of the palace itself are the Hall of Mirrors, Grand Apartments and King and Queen Apartments.

Practical Info

The Chateau de Versailles is 21 kilometers (13 miles) southwest of Paris.

Trains run from Paris’ Left Bank RER stations, dropping you 10 minutes’ walk from the palace at the Versailles Rive Gauche station.
