During my June and July holiday last year, I travelled to France, Italy and Spain.
We stayed in Paris for four days and visted The Palace of Versailles which was a dream come true. My fascination for this fairytale palace was influenced by the release of the film Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola and following after the very beautiful Vogue September 2006 issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Our private tour lasted an entire day passing crowds of people. First, we discovered the gardens and moved our way along into the palace viewing the King’s Chambers, through The Hall of Mirrors and to the Queen’s Chambers. The French manicured gardens were of course my favorite part of the tour, getting lost in mazes and sitting by a grand water display.
I am going back to France in two weeks and hope to visit the gardens once again.
