Best of travels: Versailles


Sure it’s touristy, but if anywhere near Paris, I highly recommend stopping by Versailles. It’s not as crowded as you might think. The opulent palace with sprawling manicured lawns make it easy to understand why the people started the French Revolution here by trying to burn it to the grand. But after you get over how over-the-top everything is, you can eat ice cream, row boats, ride bikes and pretend you are a member of the court. You can even see Marie-Antoinette’s palace – she had her own of course. And yes it has pink marble.
