Visit the Palace of Versailles, an essential excursion to see in Paris

If you are going to be in Paris for several days, one of the best excursions to do is to visit the Palace of Versailles. The interior of the palace is amazing, elegant and majestic and the gardens are also worth visiting.

It is a Baroque Palace that for centuries was a royal residence, declared a World Heritage Site. It is located about 20km from the city of Paris.

If you dare to do this excursion you can do it with an organized tour. They include transportation, skip-the-line tickets to the Palace and gardens, and a guide in Spanish. You have several options:

Visit the Loire Castles

The Loire Castles are considered the most beautiful castles in France. They are authentic architectural and cultural jewels that seem to come out of fairy tales. There are about 73 castles in total in the valley as well as numerous abbeys and fortresses.

From Paris you have the opportunity to get to know some of the most important and beautiful ones with an organized tour. This tour takes a tour of the Chenonceau Castle, the Chambord Castle and the Cheverny Castle.

Disney Land Paris

Disneyland Paris is one of the most fun excursions to do in Paris. Ideal for all ages, not only if you are traveling with children. You can book for Disneyland or for Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios.

The park is located 32km from the city center. You can get there by bus, by train or with a rental car if you want to go on your own. I recommend you book your tickets to Disneyland Paris online to avoid problems.

You can also take a tour that includes tickets and transportation.

Tour to Mont Saint Michel from Paris

Mont Saint-Michel is considered one of the most beautiful places in France. It is an abbey that dates back to the year 708. In the 10th century, Benedictine monks settled on the hill. What had begun as a small church, was transformed over the years into a large abbey, and the town and an important pilgrimage center were built.

It is a very charming place, in my opinion it is worth spending the night in the town and spending a little more time to get to know the area. But if you have little time, and you want to have everything organized, this organized excursion from Paris is a good option.
