Personal look: Château de Versailles

Scroll down to content

Approximately 1 hour away from the city centre of Paris, the Palace of Versailles showcases the grandeur of the old French empire, particularly under the reign of Louis XIV, where he greatly expanded his castle to the size that we see today.

You might have read numerous articles about the incredible size of the chateau, but that is almost indescribable as you see it in real life. The main buildings aside, the gardens, footpaths and the carefully constructed groves make you feel extremely tiny.

It is recommended to buy your tickets from their official website early to avoid long queues especially during the hot summer.
