|Subject: Re: Versailles and Saint Germain-en-Laye|
Hi, ziners. Graziella asked if anyone has been to Versailles
lately, and how did it go. I was there just last month, and
I enjoyed it very much. I went with a tour company, though,
so I felt very rushed. Going through the palace royal
apartments on a Saturday afternoon was very crowded. Being
with a guide, though, I could push ahead of others and get
next to her, so that helped in seeing better and getting
better photos. I would never go on a weekend again if I
could help it.
Also, the line for the toilettes was very slow, and I wasted a half hour standing in line for that; so I only had 15 minutes for the gardens -- a very quick 15 minutes. I feel I didn't see nearly enough, so next year when I go back to Paris, I am going back to Versailles again and this time with my daughter who has never seen Versailles.
