The grandeur and opulence of the architecture and design is impressive. Paintings (including ceilings) and sculptures by masters of the period - like a visit to a gallery and museum in one. Recommend use of audio guide during tour.

The Opera Royal, opened in 1640, is part of Louis XIV's astounding, over-the-top Palace of Versailles. It was recently lavishly and beautifully restored to its original and glorious state and re-opened about 5 years ago. The theatre is simply fabulous. The acoustics, even after 375...More
