Versailles - Final Day

We went to Versailles this morning. It was exquisite, but so uncomfortable because of the amount of people in there. In many of the 'smaller' rooms people were squeezed in like sardines. I had this terrible feeling that if someone fainted, other people in the room would just walk over them. It just wasn't safe to have people packed together so tightly.

It really took away from the experience of seeing how truly beautiful the place is. Most of my pictures are of the ceilings, or anything of interest five feet down from the ceiling...

The gardens had no flowers yet, but I enjoyed walking around and seeing the wonderful sculptures.

Here are some pictures of the Hall of Mirrors and a detail from one of the gorgeous paintings.
