A huge building by any other standards, this is only a small section of Versailles.

Versailles is just simply opulent. It’s definitely worth visiting, if anything, to see what excessive wealth gets you. No wonder the peasants decided to rock up at the palace gates.  I’m sure it’s much more complex than that, though I’d imagine that life would seem pretty unfair if you’re starving and someone else is living in gold-gilded château.

Versailles is a place where a picture is a thousand words, and if the word count is less than that on account of my poor picture-taking, do forgive me.  I know that I completely failed to capture the depth of the gardens.  It only looks like it goes for a mile, not miles and miles.  And the château just looks like another one old building, not the 500m long old building that it is.
