Versailles. It was AMAZING. I can't even fathom living in such a huge estate. You could walk the whole day through it and probably not get to all of it..so many rooms, and so much land. Definitely a life of extravagance. Marie Antoinette's Petit Trianon was especially intriguing, as it wasn't as extravagant. It was definitely still elaborate, but nowhere near as much as the rest of Versailles (Hall of Mirrors!) The overall view of Versailles was visually overwhelming and very stimulating. I found myself in awe of the amount of detail put into every single area of space.
The pictures include a detail of one of the many chandeliers, and one of Marie Antoinette's Salon at the Petit Trianon.
