Palace of Versailles

This superlative UNESCO World Heritage Site might be the most opulent place on earth, with a rich history to match.


The Palace of Versailles has become synonymous with the wealth, decadence and excess that led to the downfall of the French Monarchy. Along with its groundbreaking gardens, the palace traces the development of aristocratic architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries. Thanks to meticulous upkeep and renovation, visitors can tour the Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Chapel, the Royal Opera and the Museum of the History of France, each filled with exquisite stucco, gilding, and luxuriant furnishings. The Park, which sparked a new landscaping craze, is decorated with statues, fountains, and historic buildings like the Hamlet of Queen Marie-Antoinette. For a taste of the king’s lavish life, the Grand Couvert hosts the King’s table, where Louis XIV’s lavish nightly dining experience has been recreated. As the palace is so large, we recommend planning your visit, and booking tickets in advance at
