    Versailles, just outside of Paris offers an insight into the life of Aristrocracy before the French Revolution. Louis XIV's extravagant palace is one of the best in Europe.

    Go to Versailles. Go into 'The Hall Of Battles', or 'Hall Of Victories', can't remember it's exact name. Ask the curator where the picture of 'Waterloo' is? :-)

    A short train ride outside Paris is the Palace and gardens of Versailles. Starting in 1668 with his father's hunting lodge, Louis XIV built this, the largest palace in Europe (See travelogue)

    Make sure to see the Gardens which are spread out over 250 acres. Don't miss the water fountains and music outside.

    Hall of Wars

    by mydreamquest Written Dec 9, 2004
    The Hall of Wars at Versailles

    The Hall of Wars, a series of rooms with large paintings of famous French Wars, with sculptures of important generals was, to me, the highlight of Versailles.

    Built in 1678 on the orders of Louis X1V who wanted to have his court there.

    Impressive Gardens

    Me in one of the many gardens at Versailles

    The gardens at Versailles are not only incredible because of the detail, but because they are on such a grand scale, and the quality extends to every corner. Very impressive.

    Fit for a king

    by RuthLuvsPaul Written Sep 10, 2003
    Just one small part of the great chateau

    The architecture of this chateau is awesome - no expense was spared in making this the most magnificent of palaces in all of France in its time, and arguably, still today.
