  hall of mirrors, chateau versailles
by doug48

in 1668 king louis XIV began construction on the largest palace in europe. this monument to the "sun king" is overwhelming in it's opulence. the gardens alone seem to run for miles. you enter through the marble courtyard into the main palace. the main attractions are the, royal apartments, the hall of war, the salon de venus, and the hall of mirrors. in the hall of mirrors the treaty of versailles was signed in 1919 after WWI. to see this palace and gardens allocate a least a half a day. a must see sight when visiting paris.

Address: outside of the city of paris
Directions: take a train from austerlitz station to versailles rive gauche. it takes about 40 minutes.
