Pilgrimage to Paris / Lourdes - France 2

Today we will take a short trip to Versailles.
Someone said that “seeing Paris without visiting the Versailles Palace is like going to the sea and not getting into the water.” Almost all of today we will dedicate ourselves to this special place. The Palace of Versailles was the residence of the kings of France starting with Louis XIV and continuing with Louis XV and XVI. It was an important symbol of the French monarchy.
It has become a museum since 1837, at the same time being an important tourist destination, not only of Paris but also of France.
The Palace is also famous for the fact that in the Hall of Mirrors the Treaty of Versailles was signed, which officially ended the First World War.
I do not tell you more, the rest you will find out from the tour guide who will accompany you and through the audio guide that will be made available at the entrance.
I’m just pointing out: The Mirror Hall, the Royal Bedroom, the Reception Hall, the Great Battles Gallery, the Palace Gardens.
