On April 7, we spent an amazing day at the former home of Louis XIV. High school history classes would have been far more interesting living in Europe. I wrote a report on the Sun King back in 10th grade. The palace, jardins, and more were the most lavish I’ve ever seen in my travels. It was a very chilly day, but we walked throughout the day, covering all corners of Versailles.
We returned to Paris in the late afternoon to do some shopping. We ended up at La Grande Épicerie de Paris the day before Easter, in a mad dash of people seeking gourmet food before the shops were closed for the holiday. We had a nice dinner at Chez Clement near Saint Michel, and then headed back to our flat late in the evening to rest before beginning part 2 of our museum pass adventure on Sunday.
