Versailles Travel guide
Versailles : Michelin's recommendations
Versailles, symbol of the absolute monarchy and the apogee of classical arts in France, was the residence of the court and the seat of government from 6 May 1682 until 6 October 1789. The three large avenues converging on the palace were laid out to optimise sunlight. Today the city's charm lies in its distinctive façades and uneven little streets.
