In our last day in Paris, as absolute fans of Sofia Coppola, we had to pay a visit to Versailles and his stunning parks. Our first intention was to visit only Le Petit Trianon and the public gardens, but we finally decided that we may regret not visiting the palace as well, so we finally got the full passport which includes everything for 25€
In Versailles you are supposed to visit first the palace and then the gardens and Trianons, because otherwise you are requested to make the queue twice (and believe me, you don’t want to repeat that huge queue). Our visit could not have started worse: After a long time staying in line on the outside with not very nice queue assistants, the inside of the palace was definitely not better, with lots of guided groups and congestioned rooms (not the best conditions to take pictures…). To top our dismal mood, we also found that the Spanish audio guide was not what we were hoping for, and only gave us some obvious information…
We finished the visit thinking that maybe it would have been better to use our last day in the city (eating another delicious Josselin crepe!), but just then we went out to the gardens to found one of the most amazing sights of our short trip to Paris! We liked it so much that we spent the whole day going crazy with the pictures and forcing us ;) to write two separte posts for the visit (a Petit Trianon post is coming!)
Ready to join us for a short visit to the crowded palace of Versailles and to enjoy its speechless gardens? We’ll even go together on a boat ride this time (whoot!); experienced rower do not worry.

Damaris looking so beautiful with her Dahlia dress and her little bowler hat.
No tourists on top of Marie Antoniette’s bed ;)
Thanks to the audio guide we learnt that the Hall of Mirrors has seventeen mirrors and.. ok, it didn’t say much more.
Maybe there was the exact same number of people in the inside of the palace thant the outside, but the parks were so HUGE that you even “noticed” them.
While taking this pic I realized how awesome was Damaris hat.
I tried it for myself, and ok, it might not have the same effect on my head hahaha
The far you go of the palace, the less people you find.
A lady with a red handbag in the middle of the shot ruining the pic .. wait, it’s Damaris! ;)
While taking this picture of a group of good friends (and a guy on the right), I saw that you can go for a boat ride on the grand canal!
I love boat rides, we usually go to the boats of the Parc de la Ciutadella on Barcelona, but my dream is to rent a ride on Central Park ;)
Damaris taking strength to row. A few minutes before she was having fun of me because I needed some practice with the boat directions to refresh my skills, but when she took the paddle she discovered what a great sailor in fact I am, hahaha
Our views from the boat, not bat at all, to end this post in the highest spirits.
Gosh, beautiful photos as always, it’s a pleasure to watch them :)
Grazie mille Nadia!!
the dress is perfect for this location! it’s so stunningly beautiful here!
The gardens were so completely amazing, specially good views from the middle of the canal, I’m a water guy ;)
Versailles looks like a winner :)
i adore huge gardens!
Thanks Sara! I was trying to decide what I enjoyed most of our trip, and I think it’s impossible for me to choose a clear winner,
everything we did, ate and visited was awesome! We went with great expectations to Paris and were not disappointed at all.
Oh I love Marie Antoinette! Well the movie at least :P I’m glad things turned around I hate too when there are just too many people kind of spoils it hey? Plus unfriendly staff is definitely a dampener :( I love Damari’s cute hat, you look cute in it too Dani! he he.
That last shot is so beautiful well all your photos are always amazing!! Eeep, can’t wait for your next post :)
Thanks Fiona!! I’m glad you apreciate how extremely handsome I look with Damaris’ cute hat ;) Oh, if you love the movie, you must visit the gardens and Le Petit Trianon, its great soundtrack was playing in my head all the time while walking in the gardens ;)
Beautiful! I can’t believe you guys got to row a boat in the garden of Versailles! How fun?!
So much fun! I love boat rides, so adding a spectacular setting was incredible!
Wahhhh, that last one gave me the chills. What a wonderful post. Versailles is so fairytale-like and gorgeous and you made it look even more magical with your photography. I love Damaris’ dress and hat too!
Thanks for the comment Louise! I do not know if we’ve managed to capture well enough the area of Le Petit Trianon (our next post), but
it really looks even more like a fairytale!
The hall of Mirrors, How beautiful!? You guys look like your having an amazing time! :)
The hall of mirrors were definitely beautiful, but almost impossible to photograph because of the number of tourists …
Sofia Coppola was very lucky to shoot alone in the palace!
