It was a nice experience taking the train out of Paris to a royal château! The gardens of Versailles are a dream. We didn’t quite see all of it since it covers 1,976 acres!!
As we wandered through the labyrinth of the gardens we admired the statues (there are 221 of them!). We also pretended we were royalty as we strolled through listening to the classical music coming out of speakers. Since it was Sunday there were fountain shows (which just means the fountains were turned on, but it was still impressive looking). Families ran around eating ice cream, people floated in the grand canal, and it was a beautiful summer day.
We also went inside the palace of Versailles, and you can see that experience here.
