After our slight mishap with the trains the day before, it was a relief to disembark onto the platform at Versailles. A short walk up a slight hill and I caught sight of the magnificent Palace of Versailles. The grandeur of this place cannot possibly be described in words. At least not in my words anyway. Everything is gilded with gold and made of marble, and that's just on the outside. Inside it just gets more wonderful. If there was one thing (other than the usual attractions in Paris) I would recommend, it would be a visit to Versailles. It turned out to be one of my favourite days of the whole trip.
