You may schedule your return trip at a time of your convenience and spend as much time you wish in exploring the most famous palace.
Immerse yourself in old France on a tour of the Palace of Versailles and its elegant French gardens. With humble origins as a hunting lodge built in 1624, this famous architectural wonder was expanded by Louis XIV beginning in 1661 into the fantastic palace we see today. The atmosphere around the structure is filled with the history of events like the French Revolution and the spirit of such characters as Marie-Antoinette, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in France.
As the home of the last King and Queen of France, Versailles also symbolizes the height of French royal decadence, and the country's tumultuous, centuries-long transition from monarchy to Republic. Consisting of a dizzying 2,300 rooms, the sprawling chateau includes highlights such as the stunning Hall of Mirrors, the King's Apartments and Royal Bedchamber, The Royal Opera house, Marie-Antoinette's Bedrooms, and the Battles Gallery. Numerous elaborate fountains and sculptures cover the grounds around Versailles and are worth admiring in detail.
The Queen's Hamlet is a charming nook on the Estate and was Marie-Antoinette's preferred place to get away, and (scandalously) play at simple peasant life. It's charming, bucolic and vaguely Disney-esque — but worth an hour or so.
The Palace and gardens, mostly developed under King Louis XIV in the late 17th century, are among the world's most extravagant, and represent a feat in French architecture and landscaping.
Situated less than an hour from central Paris by car, the Chateau and gardens attract some 6 million visitors every year - coming in just behind the Eiffel Tower as one of France's most popular attractions.
