Château de Versailles

After my previous post about the Grand Trianon in the grounds of the Château de Versailles, I thought I’d share a few photos of the actual palace and gardens.

Grand Trianon, Versailles

The Grand Trianon is almost as beautiful as the Château de Versailles itself, but made better by the absence of pushy crowds.

Petit Palais

The internal courtyard of the Petit Palais offers a tranquil escape from the busy Champs Elysées.

Galeries Lafayette in Paris

Paris’s Galeries Lafayette is no ordinary department store.

Louvre Royal Apartments

The Napoleon III apartments in the Louvre are a reminder of its former life as a royal palace.

Arc de Triomphe

We took advantage of our Paris museum passes to climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and enjoy the view.

Musée de l’Orangerie

Monet’s Waterlilies in the Musée de l’Orangerie, were a highlight of our trip to Paris.

Summer in Paris

We spent four days in Paris over the summer. These videos highlight some of the places we visited.
