The Chateau of Versailles is situated about 45 minutes from Paris. The place is constantly packed. The best way to enjoy it is to get out there as early as you can. Also, highly suggest you purchase your tickets in advance. Give yourself at least 4 hours to tour the chateau and the gardens. Prearrange to have a “golf cart” so you can get around the entire gardens. You will thank me later.
The views are spectacular everywhere you look. The Hall of Mirrors is my favorite in the Chateau and the gardens around the fountains are special.
Hope you get to experience Versailles for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
