Getting to Versailles
It was a rainy morning in Paris so we thought it would be a good day to take the train to Versailles. Very few people had our idea and we avoided the horrible crowds you hear so much about. ⠀
Here is the train decorated all fancy! There is no mistake at which city you are heading!
The Train Ride to Versailles
The Rooms in Versailles
The palace has 2,300 rooms spread over 63k square meters. ⠀
Many of the rooms on the tour look just like this – full of history and paintings. There is an audio guide that explains everything to you as you move along. It truly is an extraordinary museum. ⠀
I have heard stories that you get shuffled from room to room because there are so many tourists. As you can see, we had the place to ourselves since it was storming outside!
The Gardens of Versailles⠀
I highly recommend going on a rainy day to avoid the crowd. It also gives you an extraordinary shots of the gardens without the big crowds, and bit of different perspective. The muddy ground contrasting with the beautiful landscape is breathtaking!⠀
