Véél te weinig tijd om dit alles te kunnen bekijken.
Fenomenaal prachtig.

Wonderful example of French opulance during the monarchy. I have visited this great palace a few times, my favorite part of Versailles is "le hameau de la reine".

Wow. This was the most beautiful Palace I have seen. I went to the Palace of Versailles in my second going to Paris and I loved it. It's such a enchanted, rich and opulent city where history was made. The gardens were AMAZING. I think that I liked the gardens more than the Palace itself. You literally couldn't see the end. Full with ponds and statues that make me felt like I was back in time. Definitely worth visiting. It's a little far from Paris but the ride pays off. A place that I'll never forget.
