Tour of the Versailles Palace

It’s hard to imagine the Palace of Versailles having such humble roots as first being a hunting lodge. It was not long after this that the palace became the seat of power for this region of France.

Starting in the 18th century, the Palace of Versailles was turned into a museum. It is the museum that many visitors to Paris enjoy every year.

However, many Versailles tours provide you with skip-the-line tickets so you’re able to spend your time in the palace and not waiting in line.

Catacombs Tours

Over many centuries, there wasn’t room for more of those who passed away to fit into the already crowded Paris cemeteries. There wasn’t room for more cemeteries and they needed room for housing and services for the growing population.

Starting in 1783, Paris began moving those who had been buried in the city’s cemeteries to the tunnels underground. It is estimated that there are between 6 and 7 million remains in the 200+ miles of tunnels beneath Paris.

Eiffel Tower

You can’t visit Paris and not climb up the Eiffel Tower to admire the finest panoramic views in the city. Unfortunately, that’s not as simple as it sounds.

Your best bet is a “skip the line” tour.
