Royal Paradise

Renowned for its vast royal palace and gardens built by King Louis XIV, Versailles is also one of the wealthiest suburbs of Paris and home to a new cultural notability, such as a thriving artistic and musical scene.
Explore Versailles' surroundings by going to Giverny (Fondation Claude Monet & Eglise Sainte-Radegonde de Giverny), Blois (Escalier Denis Papin & Port de la Creuzille) and Collegiale Notre-Dame de Vernon (in Vernon). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Palace of Versailles, kick back and relax at Deauville Beach, don't miss a visit to Vieux Bassin, and explore the historical opulence of The Trianons & The Hamlet.
