Planes and Trains and Hotels, Oh, Versailles!

If you find yourself on a plane to France, a must see is the Palace of Versailles.  The traditional mode of transportation from Paris to Versailles is train.  As part of a government program, Art In Transit, the normally drab train interiors have received a royal make over. The inside of the cars are affixed with a temporary plastic wrap of scenes from Palace of Versailles and the grounds.

For years, there were rumors of a hotel opening on the Palace grounds--it has finally come true! The Hôtel Du Grand Contrôle is expected to open in 2018, a five-star hotel with 23 rooms and restaurant headed by legendary chef, Alain Ducasse.  Not only can you ride in luxury like a King and Queen, but you'll be able eat and sleep like one too!
