What you should know about Palace of Versailles

For many, Paris is the most beautiful city in the world, and the Palace of Versailles is the ornate jewel in its crown. Unlike the restrained elegance in the French capital, this château is unabashedly extravagant, a symbol of both the flawless taste of France’s most infamous monarchy and the shameless decadence that contributed to its eventual downfall. Stay near Versailles and witness the most turbulent, intriguing era of French history come to life while losing yourself in its exquisitely beautiful surroundings.

Hotels in Versailles

It’s no surprise that luxury hotels near the Palace of Versailles are plentiful, and there’s no better way to live like a French monarch than by staying in a palatial hotel in the center of Versailles like the Pullman Château de Versailles or the Trianon Palace Versailles. You can stay here without breaking the bank as deals on Versailles hotels are commonplace. However, if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, 3-star Versailles hotels such as Hotel la Residence du Berry and Hotel Campanile Paris Ouest are a little more affordable and still let you feel like a king.

Things to see in Versailles

With sumptuous royal apartments, ornate furnishings, and gilded public rooms, the château’s beauty is never-ending, so it’s worth buying a 2-day ticket and checking into a Versailles hotel for the night to see everything it has to offer. The undisputed highlight of the palace is the Galerie des Glaces, a majestic hall flanked by 17 mirror-clad arches. Once you’ve admired its intricate architecture reflected from every angle, pass through the King and Queen’s jaw-droppingly plush apartments and descend the stairs to the immense gardens, whose expansive natural beauty perfectly complements the extravagance within the château. The appeal of Versailles’ interior is well documented, but just as alluring are the manicured lawns, raised flowerbeds, and stunning fountains of its 800-hectare grounds, which even boast an orangery and a canal. Stroll through the gardens to discover the Trianon palaces and Marie-Antoinette’s private estate, a secluded haven away from court life.

Good for history lovers

For centuries, the palace has been the center of major events in both France and the wider world, making a vacation in Versailles ideal for lovers of history. Hidden gems like the gold-plated chamber where a young Mozart played for the monarchy and the secret door through which Marie-Antoinette made her escape during the 1789 storming of the palace will take visitors back in time to the most captivating epoch of France’s past. The Galerie des Batailles, an art gallery which houses a myriad of stunning pieces tracing the story of France, is another palace highlight guaranteed to please history enthusiasts.
