Queuing in the hot sun with no regard for paying customers. Finally you reach the window of the ticket seller to be gestured and grunted at sourly. Have your money ready, tell him the number of tickets you want, the vending machine to the left...More

I and my mother had only one day to visit all Versailles, so after visiting the palace, gardens we went on foot to Marie-Antoinette's estate and thought to go back this this train, because our legs was really "dead". So at about six o'clock we...More
