Versailles is one of the most popular stops for visitors to Paris. Home to Chateau de Versailles, the town of Versailles is a must-see for those who are interested in French history.
Versailles is located about ten miles southwest of Paris. With a permanent population of around 100,00 people, the town attracts about 30,000 tourists a day, most of whom flock directly to the Chateau.

However, the highlight remains Chateau de Versailles, a massive palace built by the Sun King, Louis XIV.
