It was with great expectations that we waited for a sunny day to visit Versailles and its lovely gardens that we heard so much of. So early morning when I noticed the sun was shining for a change, I woke everyone up and said, get ready, we are going to Versailles. I must admit, I was rather dissapointed. Comparing it to St Petershof, it comes second in my book. Also, all the fountains were turned off, so how can you enjoy the gardens if the fountains are turned off? We were told that they only turn them on, on a Sunday, when we got there, so why was this not advertised? Anycase, I still enjoyed my day there and I know that you should not compare things. Viva la Versailles!!!!
The fence in the front where you enter the palace is just stunning even though it is a bit over the top
- Pros:well kept history
- Cons:fountains were not turned on
- In a nutshell:Over bearing
It's very simple to do a day trip on your own from Paris to the palace at Versailles. Take the RER C line, direction... more travel advice
