Versailles is, in every sense of the word, exquisite. Never intended as a home, it is a monument to the Sun King in its artwork, its exacting detail, and its excess. From the grandeur of the palace to the imitation farm village where Marie Antoinette played at being a shepherdess tending a flock of perfumed sheep, Versailles is the embodiment of conspicuous consumption and, as such, an important key in understanding the French Revolution. It is not far from Paris and car rental is available downtown for those wishing to visit the City of Light. With cheap car rental locations all over Versailles and a large variety of discount rental cars, there is no better way to tour Versailles than by car!
The Palace was built in the 17th century for Louis XIV in a fit of royal one-upsmanship as he was envious of his finance ministers chateau and ordered his design team to build one a hundred times larger. Completed in 1715 after 51 years of construction, the Chateau of Versailles could house the entire royal retinue of 3500 (albeit in squalor according to contemporary reports). An interesting trip with a rental car is to visit the Vaux le Vicomte, the chateau of Nicholas Foquet that Louis XIV sought to out-do.
