Study Tour to France Day 3

25 March 2015 | General Interest

We had a wonderful day visiting two beautiful and different Chateaus.  We started the day with a visit to the enormous Chateau of Versailles.  It is very opulent, grand and royal.  The crowds were enormous also.  The colours and decorations were something to be seen. It gave us a glimpse  into the life of the rich and famous of the 18th and 19th century.

We then made our way down south of France to the Chateau of Chenonceau.  Built in the 15th century it was very different to Versailles but equally impressive and interesting.  The crowds were much less and so it was easier to enter into the story and soak up the atmosphere.  We were able to take our time looking around and learning about life at this time together with some of the colourful characters who lived there.  Many girls described this visit as a highlight so far.
