versailles on a sunday afternoon- it sucked! there were so many people that you couldn't see anything and you just had to walk with everyone or you'd be trampled. on sundays when the founitains are on you have to pay to enter the gardens, and for a cheapskate like me, that's bad.
Versailles is big. Versailles is crazy big. Versailles is also empty of all furnishings, so as you're hustled from room to room, you don't really get a sense of how impressive the palace really was. Plus, it's so crowded that after about three rooms, you can't wait to leave. I've heard that Fontainebleau is much better.
