If your "to do" list in Paris includes visiting a palace, drinking the thick, rich & dark chocolat chaud (hot chocolate) that Angelina's is famous for, riding a bike, eating some LaDuree macaroons, rowing a boat and learning about French History then jump on a train and head out to Versailles. I highly recommend the audio guide here. It's packed with wonderful information which allows you to take a tour at your own pace. Wear comfy shoes and go early in the am or the lines will seem very daunting. We moved through the palace pretty quickly as most of our party had seen it before with the exception of the Hall of Mirrors which had been closed last time we were there. It is my favorite room. We had saved our euro cents so we could indulge in a lovely lunch at Angelina's. The clue sandwiches were delish as were the pastries and chocolat chaud.
Refreshed, we trotted off to the gardens and took the long stroll down to the boats on the canal. Jenny, Morgan, Breanne & I all took turns rowing but I was the least coordinated of the bunch. It was pretty obvious that I have not spent much time behind a set of oars but I did not run into any other boats so I considered it a triumph.
We wanted to venture up to see Marie Antoinette's hamlet so we rented some bikes which gave me a bit of apprehension given my lack or coordination and the fact that I haven't been on a bike in a very long time. It proved to be a very fun experience zooming around the dirt and cobblestone paths. We all wished that we had had more time to ride them but it was evening by the time we finished touring the hamlet and time to head back to Paris.
