Don't miss the highly elaborate rooms gilded in gold, with French style interiors and large paintings, such as the Battle of Chesma.

Beyond the palace, there's even more to see, so don't hesitate to take the opportunity for yourself to go see the other areas of the palace, such as the Grand Cascade, the Samson and Neptune Fountains, Greenhouse Gardens and other sculptures.
