A little trip at Versailles and Chartres....

During Eastern Holidays, we had a little trip (2 days) for visiting the Castle of Versailles and the Chartres Cathedral .

The visit of Versailles took us a very few time because my daughter was very sick and we had to go to the Hospital !!

I don't like a lot what I've seen of Versailles: too much gold and stuck and the "Gallerie des Glaces" loose all his interest when you are stuck in the crowd and don't have the possibility  to see it entirely.

 Pendant les vacances de Pâques, nous avons eu un petit voyage (2 jours) pour visiter le château de Versailles et la cathédrale de Chartres.
La visite de Versailles a duré très peu de te
mps très parce que ma fille était très malade et nous avons dû aller à l'hôpital!
Je n'aime pas beaucoup ce que j'ai vu de Versailles: trop d'or et de stuc et la "Gallerie des Glaces" perd tout son intérêt lorsque vous êtes pris au milieu de la foule et que vous n'avez pas la possibilité de la voir entièrement.



I liked the painted ceilings and the "Chapelle Royale"




That's all what I've seen of the Gardens!  
C'est tout ce que j'ai vu des Jardins!
  




 
I really liked the Chartres Cathedral !
It's a superb building and I felled better here than in Versailles! 



Beautiful stained glass:


 and so much more! 


They had begun to clean the interior and it will be a really beautiful Cathedral:


It's very pleasant to walk in the city: you can see some nice lanes landscapes or even buildings..



and sometimes you have some surprises like those old beer bottles:

 or even that: (just for Peter!)

  2. J'ai visité Versailles il y a deux ans, et je partage tout à fait ton avis : la foule gâche beaucoup la visite intérieure, très "clinquante". En revanche les jardins sont superbes et plus "accessibles" et tranquilles.
    Quant à Chartres, ce sera pour bientôt. Tes photos donnent envie!
