Palace of Versailles
This luxurious 17th-century French castle is a masterclass in excess. It has hundreds of acres of magnificently landscaped gardens, more than 700 rooms, a large collection of 18th-century French art, an opera house, and a 75m long hall of mirrors lined with statues and busts. There are no half-measures in its conception or execution (for example: it has more than 1,200 fireplaces!).
It's one of the most visited attractions – and castles – in France, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

But this is what you get in touristic places.
Overall, it was beautiful experience nonetheless.
Purchased the ticket from tiqets.com and did not even have to print it. I just showed it from my mobile phone. Also with proof of age, below 18s can come in for free.
The place is a must see. The gardens are amazing too
