THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES PT. 2

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Continuing our tour of Versailles through my lens today.  Once we left the main palace I was again left speechless at the sheer mass of the grounds.  We explored the the main fountains and then rented bicycles to explore (they also had golf carts & segways you could rent).  We soon arrived at Marie-Antoinette's estate aka 'The Queens Residence'.  This alone was another "mini" palace where I learned (thanks to Kosta) she spent most of her time and rarely went to the main palace.  Like the palace everything wad dripped in gold...I can't say I minded one bit.  One detail I couldn't get enough of was the tassel's on all the chandeliers in the estate (don't you love?)

Marie was a big Billiards Fan & she had her own in her estate
The room above in particular was a favourite of mine

We grabbed a quick lunch picnic style and Kosta continued to give me history lessons...(love him)


Stay tuned for part three coming soon...

Lots of love
Anna


Let's stay connected!
