I don’t even know how to begin talking about Château de Versailles, since it needs absolutely no introduction whatsoever. In fact, this post is going to be slightly different from all my other posts about Paris in which you allowed me to ramble non-stop. Today, I’ll let the photos do the bulk of the talking. The bottom line is a visit to Château de Versailles is a must. If you miss it the first time you’re in the city, you have to pay a visit the next time, pure and simple. Just go down any metro station and ask ticket officers for the directions. You will be there in no time, I promise.
I guess everyone’s reactions when visiting Versailles are more or less the same. I mean, how can one not be awestruck at the lavish and breath-taking opulence of this place? I have never seen so much gold in my life, to be honest with you.
The place is a human zoo and there is really no way to get around it, but its sheer beauty makes the entire experience utterly worthwhile. The only advice I might be able to offer here is try to get there early. You probably will be able to avoid the crowd for a little bit. Without further ado, here is the one and only Château de Versailles for your viewing pleasure.
