France, Day 6: Jardins du Château de Versailles

Next stop in Jardins dus Château de Versailles – which is the immensely wide gardens in Versailles. Honestly, we wanted to rent a golf cart but no one had (international) driver’s license so this was impossible. We had to go around on foot and that took us around 2 hours!

Next stop in JARDINS DU CHÂTEAU DE VERSAILLES – which is the immensely wide gardens in Versailles. Honestly, we wanted to rent a golf cart but no one had (international) driver’s license so this was impossible. We had to go around on foot and that took us around 2 hours! There were a lot of Greek references especially with the sculptures. We also visited on a good day which included fountain shows.

For lunch, we decided to eat near the train station and found CUTIE’S CRÊPE. I ordered galette which had beef bacon and cheese then we shared an order of dessert crêpe.

We went back to M’s place and took a long nap in the afternoon. Château de Versailles drained our energy… well, more like the gardens. For dinner, we went to BOUILLON PIGALLE and I was surprised to see that they had cheaper prices than the average restaurant in Paris. We ordered deviled eggs, French onion soup, escargot with pesto sauce, and bœuf bourguignon. Everything was good so super sulit!

France, Day 6: Château de Versailles

Another exciting day because it was the day of our visit to Château de Versailles. The sheer opulence of this place was enough to make our jaws drop… especially with all the gold, gems, and chandeliers. No wonder there though because this place was the former palace of French kings and it was commissioned by King Louis XIV.

We bought our tickets online with a timed entry so we were able to skip the very long line. It was very crowded even if we were there at past 9AM.

Time for Hall of Mirrors!!!!! This was absolutely beautiful. We did our best to get nice pictures here…

Explored the palace further…

…and eventually found this section where we could see familiar names and events because of the references from Hamilton, the musical.
