Versailles is famous for the famous "Palace of Versailles" which used to be the former royal residence. It is an epitome of French opulence and the fine french rococo architectural style. Since its inception in the early 17th century, this palace has seen the life of 4 generations of the French royalty starting with Louis XIII who built it. It was later acquired by the Republican Government post-French revolution during which all the members of the royal family and aristocrats were killed.Sprawling over an area of nearly 18 acres, this is an absolute wonder to watch. The entire palace sits amidst a large manicured park and great attention to detail has been given to each square inch of the space.
