Palace at Versaille

If you get the chance, go check out the Palace at Versaille. Louis XIV (the “Sun King”) significantly upgraded his dad’s hunting lodge to create an enormous palace, pulling the political center of gravity away from Paris and under his watchful eye. The whole place is over the top, from the famous Hall of Mirrors, to small chairs built for pooches (all the rage with the ladies of the day), to the groundskeepers using a trimming guide to shape the topiary!
