Just 20 kilometres away from the city centre, the trip from Paris to Versailles takes a little over half an hour. The palace, including the gardens, is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. The magnificence of Château de Versailles reflects its one time importance as the centre of French political power. Louis XIV moved his court to Versailles from Paris in 1682, which became the symbol of opulence for over a century.

The scale and grandeur of Versailles can be overwhelming, with every pillar, mirror, chair, ceiling and wall a fantastic work of art. Despite so much stunning beauty, the Hall of Mirrors, the State Apartments, the Opera House and the Chapel Royal stand out for pure, glittering splendour.

The Gardens of Versailles are a fitting compliment to the Palace and are landscaped in the classic French Garden style. The gardens include immaculate lawns, flower beds, sculptures and fountains.

Fortunately political upheavals, history and wars have spared this brilliant complex for us to see and admire today. The Paris Versailles relationship is still important as demonstrated by the many historically important conferences and treaties that were held and signed in its precincts.

Versailles return shuttle made it easy for us to visit Versailles castle. The bus ran on time and they were very organised. Easy to book too - we booked online before we left Australia. We will recommend the service to friends.

Review of Versailles Return Shuttle from Paris by C J Bennett, Australia

It rained, and the tour guide and company went out of their way to make everything as comfortable as possible. It still gave us the best experience of the palace!
