"Living Royally Large" Versailles - Daytrip Tip by wilocrek

Versailles - Daytrip, Paris: 208 reviews and 393 photos

It's hard to blame the French Monarchy for being completely out of touch with the common folk, after all they were too busy living a lifestyle so lavish it would make ....well actually there really isn't any reasonable comparison to make as the French Monarchy pretty much set the standard for living large and lavishly. Chateau Versaille is a living legacy to that! Built as a modest hunting lodge for a French King, it was later rebuilt by Louis XIV and metamorphosed into the magnificent palace we know today. Let them eat cake indeed!
