Palace of Versailles

By far, the Palace of Versailles was one of my favorite parts of my six weeks in Paris. The stunning palace is just a 45-minute train ride outside of Paris. It belonged to King Louis the Fourteenth and has a huge role in history - the Treaty of Versailles was signed in its halls. Aside from its amazing history, the architecture is incredible. Practically everything is covered in gold and every room holds something new and amazing to look at, whether its a painted ceiling, a marble floor, or intricate decorations and art. 




I was so excited that we had sun because it had been raining non-stop for about three weeks! The dress I wore is sold out now, but this one is pretty similar. And these sandals are surprisingly comfortable!






I only wish we had spent more time exploring the gardens around the palace because they are unlike anything I've ever seen. If you've ever been to the gardens at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, it's like that, but times a million. The shrubs are perfectly cut and form the cutest mazes. The entire vicinity of the gardens contains numerous mini gardens. You could easily spend a whole day in them - plus, there's a lake where you can rent rowboats!




If you ever travel to Paris, put this on your list of things to do. You won't regret it.
