We spent a whole day here and it was a day well spent indeed. We took the train out to Versailles and walked through the town to reach the Palace.
The Palace of Versailles is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The scale and splendour of the Palace has to be seen to be believed. The mind boggles at the thought of the time and money it would have cost to build and maintain.
The Palace is situated within sprawling gardens. Unfortunately, being winter when we visited, the gardens were quite bare. But we could still appreciate the geometrics patterns of the layout and admire the many sculptures and fountains that dot the gardens.
