Paris, Part III: Versailles

March 19, 2011

Versailles Outdoor Market

I’ve always wanted to see Versailles, ever since I read about the Hall of Mirrors and the French Revolution in High School history class.  I didn’t realize how far away it was from Paris (about a 45 minute subway ride), so the last time I was there, I missed it.

I’m definitely coming back, though, because Versailles is like Disneyland.  You need at least a day to see and do everything!  We saw the whole palace and took our time exploring the town of Versailles, which was very sweet and sleepy on a Sunday, except for the open-air market.  But we didn’t walk much in the gardens, which I’m sure are nicer in the summer anyway.  And I would have loved to see the play-farm that Marie Antoinette constructed, but it was a mile’s walk through the gardens, and we didn’t have time.

Here’s a few shots from inside Versailles:
