The majestic palace at Versailles can claim to be the most famous in all Europe. This was where the heart of France beat for over a century, before the revolution forced the monarch back to Paris. It was here that plots were hatched, fates were sealed and treaties of huge import were signed. The Gardens of Versailles, the creation of landscape architect André Le Nôtre, still guard the secrets of those times. A little further from the main palace we find the Grand Trianon - designed as a place of solitude for Louis XIV, and the Petit Trianon - Queen Marie Antoinette’s favorite palace, with its charming little hamlet and lake.
