    Versailles, France

    August 31, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The Palace of Versailles - one of the many places in Paris every traveler has to visit!! I didn't know much about this place before arriving in Paris, except that we had to go and now I know why. It's about 40 minutes by train from the city centre and really easy to find once you arrive in Versailles. We booked our tickets the night before and turned up around 11am. Everyone said to get there by 8am but we found the time we arrived perfect without too many lines. The Palace is absolutely stunning with so many beautifully designed and dressed rooms. It's so far from anything we have in New Zealand and it's almost unbelievable to think that people used to live this way. We had an audio guide throughout the Palace and then wandered the grounds for hours visiting Marie Antoinettes Hamlet and the Grande and Petit Trianon. Every single part of the Palace is kept immaculate and restored to its original creation as much as possible. It's definitely one of the most beautiful and iconic attractions I've seen on my travels and the photos don't do it justice!Read more

    Maison de la Reine

    Il borgo della Regina (in francese hameau de la Reine) è una dipendenza del Petit Trianon.
    La costruzione di questo borgo fu commissionata durante l'inverno 1782-83 dalla regina Maria Antonietta d'Asburgo-Lorena per allontanarsi dai vincoli della corte di Versailles, presa dalla nostalgia per uno stile di vita più rustico ispirato dagli scritti di Rousseau e desiderosa di un luogo dove il teatro e le feste le avrebbero fatto dimenticare la sua condizione regale.
    E' bellissimo girare tra queste casette costruite intorno ad un laghetto ed immaginarsi la regina che veniva qui a rilassarsi ed a giocare...

    Paris - Château de Versailles

    June 6, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Dank des Tipps meiner supernetten Gastgeberein, habe ich die Karten schon am Vortag online bestellt. Sie hat mir auch gleich die schnellste Verbindung mit der Bahn rausgesucht. Ein Traum! Prunkvolles Schloss, schöne und sehr große Gartenanlage. Am Nachmittag dann gleich mal noch zum Eiffelturm :-)
