Chateau de Versailles

By Cubie - October 11, 2010

Information from the official website -

The Château de Versailles, which has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List
for 30 years, is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century
French art. The site began as Louis XIII’s hunting lodge before his son
Louis XIV transformed and expanded it, moving the court and government of
France to Versailles in 1682. Each of the three French kings who lived there
until the French Revolution added improvements to make it more beautiful.
A little away from Paris, easily reached by train.

Once you reached the compound, you are first greeted by this...

It is a very, very, very big palace. Despite the scorching heat, flocks of tourists visit the famous palace.

Audio guide to this place is free with admission, in different languages.

And some paintings and sculptors. There were also tour group visiting this palace, the tour guide were pretty good too :P

Like how all story books, palaces comes with huge garden. They even rent out those golf car for people to go around the garden.
