In 1682, Louis XIV moved the seat of political power from Paris to Versailles. After the beginning of the French Revolution the royal family was forced to move back to Paris in October 1789.
When we walked inside I kept thinking, “No wonder they got guillotined.”
It was very decadent.
Taste wise we preferred D’Orsay, Louvre, Garnier Opera House. Versailles was nice but a bit too much for us. We like the quieter toned areas.
The gardens were being fixed up in winter.
