Versailles Palace - Review

The Palace of Versailles or simply Versailles, is a royal castle situated in Versailles in the Ile-de-France region of France. In French it is the Chateau de Versailles. When the chateau was built, Versailles was a country village. The court of Versailles was the centre of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789, following the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime. The Fifth Republic has enthusiastically promoted the museum as one of France’s foremost tourist attractions. The palace, however, still serves political functions. Heads of state are regaled in the Hall of Mirrors.

Versailles Palace, Paris Reviews

  • Castle fit for Kings, from King Louis XIV till French Revolution in 1789 many kings lived in majestic, gloriously grandiose Royal palace of Versailles. Stunning architecture, amazing artwork, numerous rooms, king’s and Queen’s apartments with huge terrace overlooking mesmerizing gardens with endless views are just incredibly amazing and breathtaking. It feels surreal to walk around to see numerous fabulous rooms, unique decor, Marie Antoinette’s personal things, like comb and mirror. After King and Queen were executed their personal belongings, artwork and furniture were taken and not very many items were returned. Still grandiose rooms, gorgeous gardens, amazing sculptures, golden hallways, fantastic gardens timeless reminders of French Royalty are very much worth to see. It feels you’ve stepped back in time, walking though history. Many historical moments were witnessed there. The First World War Peace Treaty being the most known one. On June 28, 1919 Great War was over by signing a treaty between Germany and Allied Powers. Mesmerizing, spectacular, majestic Versailles is very precious monument of world’s heritage designated by UNESCO. It’s an honour to visit this historic, magnificent, iconic palace that touches your soul leaving lasting memory. Being in Marie Antoinette’s room, nothing short of miracle. When you are there count your blessings, spending the time at splendid Royal Palace of Versailles visited by many Kings, presidents and dignitaries is certainly one of them.

  • This was an awesome experience! For 20 euros you get access to the palace and a free audio guide to use. Unfortunately there was a great deal of the palace that you didn't get to see. The lines moved fast to get in and the sheer massiveness of the palace is mind blowing. If you love history and enjoy studying the French revolution and post Renaissance European history ... This is a place you need to visit! You can read books about it all you want, but it is completely different in person!

  • Better come with a tour guide where they will bring you there by riding a bus and offer personal audio pen where you can listen to narration of the history of the rooms where you will be in. Its a big palace, and quite hot during summer, so wear loose clothes. It can be especially hot in some of the rooms inside, but sometimes it can also get cool and windy. The rooms inside are beautiful. The highlight will be the mirror hall. Some rooms are still under renovation. There will also be paintings and sculptures of historical figures before you exit.

  • The opulence of the palace and gardens is unmatched by anything i have ever seen or could imagine. It is a must see by anyone and everyone. Be prepared to walk several miles when there. The palace is stunning inside and out. I suggest doing a skip the line pass we walked right in with our guide then had a choice of doing audio guide or not. The gardens are stunning from the moment you walk out the back onto the Royal Court. Constructed in mid 1600s. Your able to look down the steps to a wide path lined with amazing statuary and ponds with amazing bronze statues in the fountains. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and so impressive, not to be missed.

  • Simply wow. The palace grounds are massive. Obviously full of tourists but it is still an amazing sight to see. You can definitely spend hours here getting lost and marveling at the beauty of the place. I'd recommend going with a guide to really understand and appreciate the the history behind everything. A must-see!
