Paris, day 5 - Gardens and Bosquets of Versailles

Finally we got to our last full day in Paris. While green was busy with job-related stuff I decided to visit Versailles one more, but this time I wanted to see Versailles gardens, Trianon and Marie Antoinette's Estate. As we mentioned earlier, Gardens of Versailles are located in a Paris suburb, so it takes quite some time to get there. By the time I got there it was almost noon and the Court of the Ministers was crowded with people in lines!

So, continuing our Versailles excursion.

Right after the Hercules salon we got into King's Grand apartments. These are the official apartments and are made to resemble Italian palaces. During the day it was open to all, foreigners and French people who came to see the king.

And so came the day three of our stay in Paris.

The morning plan was to visit the Eiffel Tower again to take some pictures of it in the morning and also climb up and take some shots of the Paris.

In the park on the way to the tower we saw some big groups of people, fire engines and such. Turn out there was some sort of family sports/running festival or something on that day.
