Paris day 3

Versailles was better than I expected, it was over the top, gigantic, and a bit peaceful all at the same time. I arrived super early to beat the crowds and used the complimentary Rick Steve's audio podcast on my phone which made the tour much more meaningful and educational. (I also used them for the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay, just download before you go).

Brilliant! What a gorgeous, historical stop to make. Are you having a hard time adjusting to life post France?

I've been to Paris, but never Versailles. Now I'm definitely putting it on my list for April!

The last time I was at Versailles was in 2000 right after the storms and galeforce winds tore the gardens to shreds. I haven't seen them looking that lovely since the late 80s when I was in kindergarten. *sigh* Gorgeous.
