3. Château de Versailles
The Château de Versailles, also known as the Palace of Versailles is day a trip out of the city you don’t want to miss. Step into one of the most flamboyant palace grounds, home to the famous Hall of Mirrors and long ago, Marie Antoinette.
The palace grounds are huge so we recommend starting off with the gardens where you’ll find symmetrical flower beds, fountains, lakes and a Grand Canal that use to host gondola parties.
Apart from the beautiful frescos on the ceiling and the luxurious chandeliers, the Hall of Mirrors holds a huge historical significance. This room was the setting for the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919 which signalled the end of World War I.
The Musee d’Orsay was a former rail station and a work of architectural and artistic beauty. Home to noteworthy Impressionist pieces by Van Gogh, Manet, Degas and more, you’ll easily spend a whole afternoon here.
P.S. We suggest starting at the top and working your way down.

If you come at sunset, you’ll want to head up to the 6th floor for some spectacular night views of the City of Lights.
