In the summer of 2009 we visited the amazing Palace of Versailles. After seeing the Sofia's Coppola movie Marie Antoinette I already had my expectations high!! but still I was blown away by the proportions of the palace and its gardens... is just surreal! the amount of luxury and details that you find while visiting the palace!
I can only say!! Men!! the French did know how to live!
When you enter you immediately view the amazing gardens that seem to go on and on!
than you enter the palace in which each room is just a feast to the eye, the paintings, fabrics!!
the amazing chandeliers!
if you feel too overwhelmed by the colors, prints and paintings... just open the window and gaze at the beautiful gardens,
recover your breath and continue the visit :)
If you plan to visit Versailles do buy your tickets online to avoid queuing for hours. Get there really early! otherwise you will need to queue as well to enter :P
