Paris is one of my favorite cities in Europe and I couldn’t be happier to be back! It’s one of the few European cities where I actually enjoy all their attractions, from monuments to parks to cathedrals. I even enjoy the art museums! My boyfriend and I planned for 3.5 days in Paris and it was just not enough time to do everything on our list. I wish we had more time to simply wander the streets of Paris and take in the beautiful city. Needless to say, I’m already counting down the days until my next visit.
Palace of Versailles has been on my travel bucket list ever since my AP European History class. I read about the grandeur of the Hall of Mirrors and I couldn’t wait to see it in person. So when a Paris trip came up, I knew I wanted to visit Versailles. With plane tickets booked, I went into research mode but found the official website to be incredibly confusing. It took me a long time to even figure out what the difference was between Musical Gardens and Musical Fountains Show. To save you from the same research, I created this guide to hopefully answer questions you’ll have when planning your own trip to Louis XIV’s beautiful creation.
