Versaille is another one of those super-touristy things that you kind of need to see when you visit Paris. Words and pictures don’t really do it justice. The scale and lavishness of the palace and gardens really must been witnessed in person to be fully appreciated. We made our pilgrimage outside of Paris on Wednesday to see things for ourselves.
The gardens of Versaille are one of its most impressive features. A huge space filled with statues, fountains, and well manicured plants, you could spend hours walking around. Unfortunately for us, they’re doing a major renovation project on the main fountains, and apparently had to shut the water off to the whole fountain system. None of them were on.
