Palace of Versailles and Paris

Today we headed into France.  After a 4-hour drive, we arrived at our first destination, the Palace of Versailles.  Before seeing the palace, everyone was on their own for lunch.  The palace was built by Louis 14th and several other Louis kings lived in and expanded the palace, including Napoleon.  We could see many rooms and then tour the large gardens behind the palace.

After touring the palace, we had a short bus trip through the city of Paris, seeing many of the famous landmarks.  After checking into our hotel near the Eiffel Tower, we headed to the Cafe du Commerce for our supper.  Following supper, we learned how to use the subways in Paris and arrived at Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart) on a mountain side that overlooks Paris.  We had great views of the city.
