Versailles palace

Lunch with our finds from the market. The pears and Brie cheese were my favorites - just incredibly good but everything was very tasty!

I was actually a little disappointed in the interior of Versailles. I was hoping it would all be furnished as it was at various periods of its history. Most of the furnishings were removed during the revolution and sold but they have found and brought back most of them now however they weren't in the rooms they would've been found in. Most of the rooms are essentially an art gallery.
But here are some I liked.

The hall of mirrors

The outside of course is gorgeous as are the gardens

Louis XIV liked mirrors and there are some interesting mirror art on the outside. This is us standing in front of the mirror with the palace behind us.
