How to visit Versailles from home
Here is how to visit the Palace of Versailles from home. There are many ways to visit one of the most famous attractions in Paris neighborhoods. Versailles is one of the greatest baroque palaces in Europe! Several architects have worked to build this magnificent palace, between 1623 and 1683. Louis XIV wanted this Palace to be great. That is because there is not just an architect who designed it, but many.
