    The first Sunday of the month is free-that means EVEN MORE people. It is one of the rare wonders of the world that is worth battling crowds for, but if you can: pay for it and go on a weekday.

    A must see, in easy reach by RER from central Paris. Make sure to get the audio guide, you'll miss great background otherwise and the movies about the history of Versailles play audio through them.

    Louis XIV spent 50% of the country's GDP building this. No wonder they ended up killing off the monarchy. Revolution!

    The park is an amazing place for a walk in Sunday. If you just want to benefit from it for free just enter from back entrance (3 km from main one)

    Notice that the Palaces of Trianon and Marie-Antoinette's Estate is 25 min walk from the palace, the mini train is €7.5 round trip. So you might end up paying €10.5 for the Palaces of Trianon.

    Do not bother going on a cold rainy day. You won't get the best out of the gardens. Wish we could have rented bicycles and rode around the grounds all afternoon. Next time.
