Versailles, Île-de-France, France
6 Kudos
Favor the days of great waters so the weekend, at least once, the period goes from spring to autumn and the beginnings and end of season are quieter. An enchantment. Do not neglect to visit the two small castles. We wanted to see the castle again. Bad luck, it's closed on Monday. So we went for a walk in this Garden. French-style. With these fountains so imaginative. Other works that deserve to be even more highlighted as they are beautiful. This park is really nice despite the cold. And to say that one day, the Sun King and Marie Antoinette walked this place. In these gardens nothing leaves room for chance.
