When in Paris, make a side trip to see Palace of Versailles in Versailles, approximately Versailles away. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Champs-Elysees, and walk around Luxembourg Gardens.
