Despite two previous trips to Paris, I'd never been to Versailles. The truth is that I've been to Peterhof, which was modeled off of Versailles, numerous times, and I figured if I've seen one disgustingly ornate palace I've seen them all. I did try to go while I was in Paris the previous summer, but was informed that there were approximately 20,000 people already lined up/inside, and just the thought of that gave me hives.
However, it was one of the Must-Sees for my boyfriend, so off we went. I have to say, it was fairly magical.
Since we went in January, there were no lines at all. We were able to just stroll right in, and then walk around the palace without the crush of people. It was perfect.
