Palace of Versailles: Photo Tour

Versailles is perhaps most well-known as the home of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. It’s also one of the most ornate palaces around the world, characterized by perfectly manicured gardens and seemingly-endless gold. Alex and I visited the palace back in 2012, during a sculpture exhibition by artist Joana Vasconcelos. Here’s a quick photo tour of our visit:
