Château de Versailles

Just imagine you are part of the royal court between 1682 and 1789. You are one of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette guests and have just arrived at one of France’s grandest palaces. The coach drops you off in front of the golden gates, you walk across the cobble stone road to the entrance. You make your way past the chapel and walk the palace corridors as you make your way to the Hall of Mirrors. Louis is waiting for you there and you spend the evening with him and Marie Antoinette dining and dancing. It’s easy to imagine this scene as you walk through the château. I will remember every step, room, staircase, window, painting, garden and furnishing. I will dream of living there and wish for the day I get to go back!
