Palace of Versailles Castles Next

The Palace of Versailles is on the outskirts of Paris, and it is short train ride to get there from the center of the city.  The palace and grounds are massive, so you should allow plenty of time to explore.  I was quite impressed with the lavish furnishings in the palace and the beautiful gardens.  The hall of mirrors was where the treaty of Versailles was signed to end World War I.  I would strongly advise that you visit the palace off-season or during the week.  It was extremely crowded when we visited on a Sunday afternoon in August.
