Visiting the Palace of Versailles is one of the things to do absolutely when you visit Paris. The castle is 20 kilometers away from Paris but it is easily accessible by train. Just take the RER line C. The journey takes about 1 hour.
Especially remember to buy your skip the line ticket in advance on the Internet to avoid the very long queue that can occur especially during the holiday period.
Once there, plan a full day to visit without stress the different rooms of the castle and the gardens with its dozens of ponds and fountains. Don't miss the Hall of Mirrors in the castle. Outside the domain is very vast and there are several mansions to explore, such as the Petit and Grand Trianon and the Hameau de la Reine.
In the summer, the castle offers every weekend a sound and light show in the gardens as well as a fireworks display. #paris #awesomepic #worldheritage #movielocations
Visiting the museums in Paris must know the money-saving strategy!
Arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, it was a photo exhibition of a whole gallery, which brought people into the artistic atmosphere of France. The Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Fontainebleau are all familiar with the art scenes of Paris. Now you can visit them all by buying a museum pass. The
Museum Pass includes tickets to more than 60 museums and memorials such as the Louvre, the Palace of Versailles, the Pompidou Centre, the Arc de Triomphe and the Muse d'Orsay. There are two-day, four-day and six-day tickets, the price is 48 euros, 62 euros, 74 euros, if you go to the Louvre, the ticket is 12 euros, the Versailles ticket is 18 euros, the Centre Pompidou 13 euros, The Arc de Triomphe climbs to the top of 9.5 Euros, so even if you only go to these 4 places, the two-day ticket will be worth the return price, and in most places you can also skip the queue.
The Paris Museum stipulates that children under the age of 18 are exempt from the ticket and need to travel with their parents. If the parent holds a pass, the child does not need to line up separately, and can accompany the parents to directly enter the museum with their age identification (passport).

There are so many exhibits in the Palace of Versailles. It is very difficult to see them one by one. Every exhibition hall or every exhibit wants to know clearly, but it may take a few weeks. So, take a look at the shocking architecture for a limited time. As for the profound history, you will learn more slowly later.
More than 500 large and small halls in the Palace of Versailles are located in a magnificent and magnificent decoration. The multicolored marble walls are dazzling, the giant crystal lamps pour down like waterfalls, and the western-style oil paintings on the inner walls and palace domes seem to tell the heroes of the past kings. The myths in the oil paintings are vividly told.
If you have enough time, you can visit the castles of the main palace of Versailles and continue to visit the big and small Trianon Palace and the Marie Antoinette Palace. If you have limited time and only visit the main palace castle, please go directly from the palace entrance. If you only visit the big and small Trianon Palace and the Marie Antoinette Palace, you can pass through the main palace castle and then enter the big and small Trianon Palace and Marie Antoinette Palace from the honor guardrail. The court can also be accessed directly from the Queen's Guardrail or the St. Antoine Guardrail.
Mirror Hall is one of the most unmissable exhibition halls. It is also called the mirror gallery. It is in the south of the war hall and west in the garden. The most famous hall of the Palace of Versailles, the "Mirror Hall", was converted from a gallery. It is 73 meters long, 12.3 meters high and 10.5 meters wide. On one side is 17 huge floor-to-ceiling windows facing the garden, and on the other side is a huge mirror made up of 483 mirrors.
The Palace of Versailles is famous throughout the world for its luxurious and imaginative architectural design. The primary attractions of the site are all located on the second floor of the main building. Perhaps the most famous one is the Hall of Mirrors. The Gallery of Great Battles is also one of the palace's highlights. The interior decoration in the gallery primarily features paintings of Louis XIV battling Spain and Germany. The palace grounds feature an extraordinarily large and gorgeously designed French garden with extremely symmetrical geometry. The Neptune Fountain can be considered the centerpiece of the gardens. To the north of the main building is the Latona Fountain; to the south of the main building are many attractions such as the orangerie and greenhouses.
