I had just three things I was dying to do on this trip to Paris. I wanted to visit Musee D’Orsay (never made it), Champagne and Chateau Versailles. Luckily we crossed off the last two. Versailles is only a 45 minute train ride, and I mean the Paris subway kinda train, no need for the high speed ones. Which also meant it cost us under 10 euro a person to go. As soon as we arrived, we headed straight to the Chateau’s to start exploring. I recommend either being the first people off the train and make a b-line to the ticket office, or get your tickets in advance to avoid a line.

Once you walk in there are two main museums that our photographer Katie told us to skip. Glad she told us that, because the line was ENORMOUS. She recommended we head straight to the far back right of the park to visit the tiny chateaus. It took us quite a while to head back there as we kept getting distracted by the incredible grounds. There’s just so much to see, it was all so stunning. Took us so long that we ended up getting lunch at the little cafe inside the park which was unexpectedly delicious. Something about on-site museum restaurants always worry me that they’re overpriced and not impressive. This was the opposite. After fueling up we finished the walk over to the mini chateaus and explored. There was Marie Antoinettes house and then two others which I couldn’t tell you if you put a gun to my head who they were for.

Needless to say, they were all stunning, impressive and full of amazing history. We then walked back and took our train ride home. We hopped off at Bir Hakeim and walked around a bit before settling in to the Eiffel Tower Park to watch the Eiffel Tower light up. It was a long, busy, but oh so fun day.
