Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles, located to the west of Paris, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful

castles in the world. Originally, it was a humble hunting lodge built in the early 17th century by Louis XIII. It was his son, Louis XIV, who decided that he could no longer bear the incredible stench that was Paris at the time and made haste to turn Versailles into the official royal residence in place of the Louvre. And thus began the colossal task of transforming the lodge into a sumptuous palace fit for a king. Both interior and exterior are magnificent. The gardens, designed by Le Nôtre, are exceptional with the beautiful Grand Canal, the Orangerie, the pond of Switzerland, the Neptune Fountain, La Ferme de Marie-Antoinette, Le Grand Trianon as well as Le Petit Trianon. The best time to admire the splendour of the palace and the surrounding grounds is at sunset. Go right at the end of the Grand Canal by bike (you can rent these in the park) and watch the sun set across the water and behind castle. See more at:
