The official web site for the Chateau of Versailles offers information about the history of Versailles in addition to tours and public events. The site has an interactive map which enables the user to tour the exterior and interior of Versailles and the Trianons. Biographies are offered of the major figures associated with Versailles. Major works of art at Versailles are singled out for more detailed explanations. There are panorama tours of the Hall of Mirroirs and the King's Bedchamber. Educational materials for teachers and students are offered but they are only in French.
Wiill use the slide shows in class- Western Perspaectives II. As this site demonstrates, visuals bring history to life. A great retrospective of the life and times of LouisXIV and his monument, Versailles.

I actually really enjoyed this website because of it's easy navigaion and beautiful layout. It included a great deal of historical landmarks and an update on those landmarks, as well as beautiful portraits with a small description of each. Again, learning a little history of France was fairly easy to navigate through, and would definately recommend this site to anyone wanting to know more.

Beautifully structured website with menus of the current events, and many more about it's history. Many wonderful pictures and details about the entire palace. I especially enjoyed the little known details about different rooms in the palace, pictures of the "masterpieces" from the museum, and mention of the King's chocolate recipe.
