Parts of Versailles will be turned into a hotel to pay the bills
The Palace of Versailles, one of the most famous landmarks in the world, is about to be turned into a hotel.
The chateau's constructions began in 1664 and the palace became the house of France's political power in 1682, when Luis XIV moved away from Paris. Since then, millions of people have visited the area, which was also listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site, but things are about to change in an unexpected way.

Under financial pressure for meeting the cost of maintenance, the management company that oversees the palace has been looking for an external partner to turn three buildings into a luxury hotel where customers can spend a regal night. According to Traveler, the three buildings are outside the gates of the actual castle and have been needing renovations for a few years.
