Château de Versailles is a must see for anyone who visits Paris. Only a short train ride away, the estate makes for a perfect day trip out of the city. While the main palace itself can be a bit overwhelming with little ones, the rest of the grounds and “mini” palaces are great for families to explore. Parents will love the history and splendor while kids will enjoy running around beautiful gardens. Enjoy a day fit for royalty at Versailles.
