Versailles


We spent an entire day at the Chateau of Versailles outside Paris. It was a beautiful warm spring day and we enjoyed being outside the city. The palace was truly impressive with lots of gold, rich fabrics and marble. The gardens are manicured with strange shaped topiary shrubs and beautiful fountains. There are several small mansions away from the main palace called the Trianons.

We were able to make it back to Paris in time for a lovely dinner at a street cafe to watch the sunset with the Parisians.
