Now this is definitely the way to see Versailles...by bike! The gardens are just so incredibly beautiful and huge! We were able to pedal around on the tree lined paths. We had shopped at the really yummy Marché of Versailles...cheeses, bread, pasta salads, ham, cherry tomatoes, and cookies. We picnicked by the grand basin in full view of the glory of the chateau.
After we rode to the chateau and gave up the tranquility of the park for the mass hysteria inside of the chateau. Always beautiful and interesting, but it seemed to be bulging at the seams with the July throngs of visitors. It was such a relief to hop back on the bikes after!
