Versailles from George on Vimeo.

Opulent, magnificent, over-the-top, Versailles lives up to, and surpasses, all of its associated stereotypes. Definitely not a place to explore in one day – it makes for a great place to visit again and again. Here, the visit took place on a slightly moody day – temperature wise (and in other ways too) but one gets the sense that this is a fantastic place to visit during the spring too. In warmer times, fountains get turned on to music and the beautiful, sprawling gardens become more alive and open to days spent at this really magnificent tribute to a bygone French era … Versailles is a must see while around Paris.
