When traveling to a different country you need to make the most of it, visit great places and eat good food. Over the years I have met many people who have visited France and all have their own opinions and experiences from their travels and so I decided to take a short trip over to see what all the fuss was about. There really is an endless list of what you can explore in a country so passionate about their history, and so my list details five of the best things I found to see and do.
Chateau de Versailles (The Palace of Versailles)
Better known as Versailles, this is a beautiful palace from the 1600’s and it remains in perfect condition sitting in perfectly designed grounds. It is s a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. To make the most of this experience it is advised to book a private tour, allowing you to take your time and absorb the history this building contains.
