2018 is here!
It’s going to be a busy year at Versailles Century headquarters.
The most exciting news for me, and hopefully you, dear reader, is that I’m going to spend Easter in France. I haven’t yet decided how to divide my time between Paris and Versailles — 50-50? 60-40? 70-30? — but I do know that I will have to spend at least 2 days in Versailles. As you may have realized, I try as much as possible to use my own photographs to illustrate this blog, and I use ONLY my own photographs for the Instagram gallery (@versailles_century). I’ve already used more than 80% of the photo archive from my 2016 visit to Versailles, so it’s high time to go and take more.
I’d like to spend several days in Paris, where I’ve never actually stayed for more than 2 nights in a row. My particular focus for this will be on places and things from the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI. Already on the itinerary: the Musée Cognacq-Jay, the Musée Nissim de Camondo, Bagatelle, the École Militaire, the Palais Royal, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and the Place Vendôme. What else should I see?
