With hundreds of acres of magnificent gardens and ornaments everywhere you look, this 17th-century French castle is a masterclass in swankiness. Get the royal treatment with Versailles tickets. While the splendor amazes your eyes, the included audio guide will fill your head with context.

Unbelievable as it may seem, this complex was initially a humble brick-and-stone hunting lodge built for Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV (the Sun King) went his own way, turning it into an enormous monument to architecture, art, and the fine taste of the French monarchy. There are no half-measures in its conception or execution (it has more than 1,200 fireplaces!).

That opulence you'll have the chance to enjoy with your Versailles tickets is most evident in the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), a 75m-long ballroom lined with statues and busts. The 357 mirrors bedecking the 17 arches opposite the windows.

But the Palace of Versailles isn't just famed for its magnificence – it was also where the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end WWI. Versailles is one of the most visited attractions in France, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The audio guide that can be added to your basket at the checkout for €6, will give you all sorts of info and stories about the history of this magnificent complex.

one point only: it is a bit difficult to understand how to get from the main palace to Trianon and Petit Trianon
