No. 12 Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France

13 of 27

Annual Visitors: 5,900,000

King Louis XIV did a pretty nice job redoing a place that started out as a mere hunting lodge. So nice, in fact, that people trade Paris cafés just for the experience of wandering its hallways, like the gilded Hall of Mirrors—the best place to channel your inner Sun King. en.chateauversailles.fr —Rich Beattie
