Instead of Versailles

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I decided that Versailles should be postponed until the weather was warmer, when the flowers would be greeting me in their full colourful blooms. Instead, went out exploring a bit more of Paris with my girlfriends, around the Bastille and the Marais area.

The Carnavelet Museum, from which the above picture was taken, is a museum of the history of Paris. Once a family mansion, then a hotel, it is now a collection of rooms filled with paintings, scultures, and furniture from the different eras. Free for all :)
