So beautiful. Could have spent another day to explore the gardens. We went all the way down to the lake with rowboats and rented a boat for the kids. We rented bikes to bike town to Marie Antoinette’s house. That was the highlight I think....More

We’ve been before, but this time the gardens were at their brilliant best. We paid a reasonable price to go on a day when a Jardins Musicaux show was on. It was amazing, with fountains seeming to dance in time to classical music. It helped...More

This property has got to be seen to be believed. It is worth the wait. Take the audio guide and be prepared to spend the day in and around the palace. The various rooms have so much history to them and you cannot help but...More

If you want a taste of the French royal life you should definitely visit the palace of Versailles. It is huge and the rooms from centuries ago are kept in pristine condition. The halls of mirrors are impressive and the gardens are huge.

A magnificent palace - the state apartments show beautiful paintings illustrating the history and building of the Palace of Versailles, and the French monarchy who resided here. The Hall of Mirrors is located after you finish the state apartments (though I wish they commented more...More

How on earth the French kings thought they'd get away with spending that much money on themselves amazes me, but because they did we have this astonishing palace and gardens to visit. In some ways it's a bit like a trip to Disneyland - it's...More

I don't want to discourage anyone from visiting this remarkable historic site, and the French ministry of Culture deserves tons of praise for maintaining it for posterity. But my visit brought to mind the old joke: if the party planning has the Germans doing he...More
