Fancy yourself as a bit of a Sun King or Queen? Well, go and check out the original’s pad!
The Château de Versailles is a popular spot, and although built outside of Paris, it is accessible thanks to the RER Château Rive gauche station nearby. Or better yet, park just a stone’s throw away to where Louis XIV called home. So you can visit it after a morning at the Louvre or be sure to be back in Paris to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night!

Built in the 17th century to a cost that nearby bankrupted France, the arguably prettiest, most extravagant palace in the world and to top it all, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Sight too!
What was once a humble hunting villa was transformed by the Sun King into a complex, designed to impress and make other monarchs feel inferior to the King of France. The palace has over 2300 rooms, as well as gardens covering 815 hectares, which were designed to show the King’s power over nature, after the land was transformed from marshy swamp into a symmetrical wonderland.
This is the main stage for lots of French history, three kings lived here before the Parisian mobs carted the unlucky Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette to the guillotine.
Plus, here you can see the famous Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed, which has been said to have been one of the causes for the Second World War.
If you’re going to Paris, you really shouldn’t miss out on this grandest of Palaces, so why not make it easy for yourself and have your parking booked just a stone’s throw away - take a look at our map now! You think a monarch wastes their time looking for a parking space? Well, neither should you!
