Clearly the most spectacular home is the Château de Versailles, which merits an entire day-long visit. Guidebooks can help you discover the Hall of Mirrors, the king’s and queen’s chambers (completely restored and decorated in their original styles), the private apartments and the ravishing Royal Opéra. But you won’t need a guide to stroll through the park and to visit the Grand and Petit Trianon. You can plan a guided visit of the Palace, leaving from and returning to Paris.
