The history of the magnificent Palace of Versailles really started in 1682 when Louis XIV moved his court to Versailles, and the opulence of the palace continued until the revolution in 1789. In 1830 the palace became the Museum of the History of France and is one of the most popular attractions in the city. The history and art on display is immense, so if time is an issue, choose subjects and periods of history that are of most interest. But make sure you visit the Hall of Mirrors, the State Apartments and the Royal Chapel!
