Girls Trip - Day 12, Paris
Today was the day for our visit to Versailles. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had no idea of the grandeur and opulence of the palace, the gardens and the estate. I have seen many pictures and books on Versailles but visiting is the only way to really understand the vastness. I also had no idea of the area the estate covered. It was a place fit for a king! No wonder you can buy a 2 day pass. It was hard to take pictures inside the palace especially since several of my friends from all around the world decided to visit today with me. It was still worth the visit.
I tried to imagine all of the kings, queens, princess and historical characters that walked, sat or stood in the places as I was. The gardens with all the pathways and fountains must have been fun to play in as a child living at the estate. We chose today to visit because the fountains would be running accompanied by music. They were beautiful. My favorite part of the visit was walking the grounds and most specifically Queen Marie Antoinette's Hamlet. The village had such charm and it was such a contrast to the other buildings on the estate.

It looks like you had a wonderful day touring the spectacular palace and grounds and fountains of Versailles. It brings back good memories of when Danielle and I visited there a few years back.
