The verdant city of Versailles is nestled on the western edge of Paris, France. Dominated by the majestic Château de Versailles, which humbly started as a hunting lodge, the city draws hordes of visitors who want to see how Marie-Antoinette and other French royalty lived. No expense was spared to construct the opulent quarters, gilt halls, and sprawling gardens. The central venue for French politics under Louis XIV, the palace is still used for important political meetings as well as art exhibitions. The Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors) is where the treaty ending World War I was signed.
