First built in 1623 by Louis XIII, the Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles) is one of the most excellent achievements of 18th century French art.
Located around 20 KM southwest of Paris, Versailles can be reached by riding the train. Go down at Versailles Château Rive Gauche, a station on the line C that is approximately one hour away from the city center.
As usual, I thought touring the Palace of Versailles would be best with Sandeman as they can guide you and tell you the interesting stories. Their tour is worth €30, and that already includes the back & forth train tickets. Meeting place was in front of Fontaine Saint-Michel again. Since that day was a Friday, the Musical Gardens would be open so they asked us to pay extra €7. Apparently, there are certain days only that the Fountain Show and Musical Gardens are open from April to October. Best to check their website to see the schedule.
