Versailles: should I go?

Jump to last reply

I'm leaving on June 26th for what will be my 3rd visit to Paris. This time, I'm travelling with my parents and my sister, none of whom have ever been to Paris before. All three of them want to visit Versailles during our time in Paris. I didn't visit Versailles on my first two trips to Paris, mainly because I found that there was more than enough for me to see and do in the city, and it just wasn't a priority.

This trip to Paris will be a short 6 days, and although initially I thought I should go with my family to visit Versailles THIS time, because I haven't been yet, I can't seem to get excited about the idea. It's not like I'm not interested in seeing the palace, I just don't want to spend precious Paris time on a day trip during such a short stay in Paris. I'd rather save it for a longer trip. I'm going through my guide books and finding TONS of stuff I really want to see and do within Paris itself--just like the last two times I went. So I feel like I could make better use of my time staying in the city.

On the other hand, my parents and sister want me to go with them, and it might be a while until I can go to Paris again (though I hope not) and I do have an interest in seeing the palace.

So tell me: Is Versailles really so incredible that it's a MUST see? I know that everyone has a different opinion on this matter, and that in the end, it comes down to what I want, but I guess I'm just looking for some help making up my mind. Give me your opinions, oh wise Fodorites! :)
