The Palace of Versailles is a must-see when you visit Paris. Sometimes incorrectly referred to as a palace, the castle is located about 15 to 20 kilometers from Paris. The castle was built in Versailles and dates from the early seventeenth century. The then French king Louis XIII had a hunting lodge built in red brick here. His son, Louis XIV, had the castle converted into an enormous castle, in several stages. The last occupant of the castle was Louis XVI. He lived here with his popularly hated wife, Marie Antoinette, until the people occupied the castle on October 6, 1789. This is when the royal family was forced to leave the castle. During the French Revolution, the castle’s inventory was auctioned.
As you can read, this majestic building has a vibrant history. Your guide can tell you all about this French culture’s pillar and more during your eight-hour tour. Stroll through the parks and gardens and get drawn back in time while taking in the beauty of Versailles. At the end of the day, your guide brings you back to your accommodation in the city of Paris.
