Sightseeing route in Versailles

Versailles

【Description】

It is the famous palace constructed by Louis XIV. It takes 30 minutes by train from Paris. We find many gorgeous rooms and, in particulier, the Hall of mirrors is worth visiting. Certainly, there are many points to visit in the palais, but the vast garden is also to visit. The garden is so large that we spent almost of time there. So, it is better to prepare walking shoes. The mini tram and the rent cycle are useful for the visit.
