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 75 m-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.

The line to get in qued around but it moved quickly. We got alot out of the narration too.
The resturant was pricey but excellent. A good part of the experience.
The best part was the gardens. We rented bikes, had lunch and walked around. You don't need a ticket for that!!!
