Versailles in detail...




These are just a few of the images from our visit to Versailles.  It was amazing the amount of detail
that went into each room.  The doors were my all time favorite and the hardware was beautiful!

If you are traveling to Paris I highly recommend a visit to Versailles.  I may even go back again and skip the main house first thing to avoid the crowds and head straight for the smaller buildings and the garden.  

It took us all day to explore the area and we were exhausted afterwards, but it was totally worth it..
