Chateau de Versailles Paris, France + Vlog

Thursday, February 21, 2019


Hey girl!

The last part of our Paris travel series was a day trip to Versailles. It is a 2,014 acres royal residence, which makes it the world's largest, turned into a museum that showcases nowadays paintings and sculptures. It was built in the 17th century by the sun king Louis XIV. I can clearly see the greatness of monarchy at that time. The palace was intricately constructed including the meticulously French garden style which leaves me in awe. It was originally built as a hunting territory of the father of Sun King, Louis XIII

You know how I am interested in palaces, castles, and royalties because I believe I am a princess in my past life. Still living in it on my dreams. Haha. Luckily, Europe was filled with the royal goodness and I can't get enough being amazed. 


But to tell you the truth, the more I learned and saw about the extravagant life of the royalties, the more I am good with my ordinary self. It is like a good dream, but I don't want to live on it. Sculptures, painted walls, furnitures were all work of arts worthy of so much appreciation. Hands down to the painters, architects and furniture maker to all of these. Every corner can't be missed out.


Here is the famous Hall of Mirrors. It has 17 mirrors parallel with 17 windows. the glass chandeliers added to the already great ambiance of the area. It looks like a grand ballroom. It makes me so much inspired by all the styles and execution of the art makers. Goodness!


BATTLES GALLERY
The largest room in the palace and one of the main attractions in the museum. It represented the greatest battle in the history of France.


Another thing not to surely missed out is the gardens. It was so huge that you really have to take mini trains or rent a golf-car to roam around the area (unless you want to miss the most part). Well, the biggest part of the tour was walking around so ready yourself if you want to indulge to its beauty to the fullest. It was an experience I did not regret I didn't miss.


THE DOMAIN OF TRIANON

There are three parts of Versailles you have to check out when you pay a visit and you make sure that you have brought the right ticket to experience these three because the Trianon was usually not included if you would buy the standard palace and garden tour. It was actually worth seeing especially when you are in love with nature. It was the perfect escape place to the royal extravagance. Built by  Louis XVI and Queen Maria Antoinette, it was the fruit of love and intimacy. The charming surroundings were on top.



Beautiful landscapes, cute buildings, still and peaceful surroundings. Everyone will fall in love with its special charm.


Here is my vlog on my Versailles tour.



Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
