Versailles, a Royal Château
There are not enough words to describe Versailles. Its boundless grounds and endless extravagance in every detail had me walking around wide-eyed and gaping. Adding to this effect was my lack of knowledge about Versailles going into this experience. Versailles had been recommended to us about a week or two prior to starting the trip by a friend who studied in France for a year. It was in his “Top 3 Must-See” for France. That was enough for me. Done and done. It’s on the list and I’ll figure out the details later! Fast forward to evening #2 on the trip and we were planning what to do the next day. How about a day trip to Versailles?
Day 3: Day Trip to Versailles
We were up at 6:30am and travelling on our 8:45am long distance train to Versailles after hitting up the local grocery mart for breakfast on-the-go and a snack for later. We finally arrived at the palace gates around 10am, blinded by gold.
More to come of the palace interior and miles and miles of the enchanting grounds, gardens, and additional structures.
