The trip from Paris to Versailles is about 45 minutes and is made easy on the Versailles Express Coach. Known as the largest palace in the world, the palace has over 700 rooms and the grounds cover more that 2000 acres. The artwork alone is worth the trip. Just be prepared for an hour line-up.
The Hall of Mirrors is beyond words. Just take a look at the lady in the blue jacket, in the bottom left, her expression says it all.The Gardens of Versailles are also beyond belief, manicured lawns, lakes, fountains , trees and statues abound. My photographs don’t do the gardens justice. If you want to see more, I strongly suggest you check out the Dior commercial (long version) from 2012 called Secret Garden Versailles, featuring Daria Strokus and the music of Depeche Mode.
