Paris, France

My Review

This was such an interesting evening!

Bad timing on our part though, since our visit coincided with the beginning of school holidays meaning (a) so many delays on the roads through and out of Paris and (b) crowds at the ch√Ęteau itself, making progress into it slow. In fact, I had to race through the last part of the visit in order not to miss the fireworks. Still, as a somewhat reluctant tourist, I enjoyed the fact that this is evidently a monument visited "the French" themselves: lots of grandparents and grandchildren having a great time together.

The visit organized by Viatour was great, and our guide friendly and helpful (thanks for the drop off to where I was staying). "My traveling companion" ie my Aunt and I were part of a group of 7 and would have been very happy to eat at a communal table in the restaurant at Vaux-le-Vicomte, but instead we had a table just for the two of us and the other part of our tour had their own table, which was in fact really nice. Very efficient service, pleasant meal.
The candlelit gardens were spectacular.
The only hitch was that the queues to get in to the castle were so long that I didn't get to spend enough time in it.

All in all, a great evening.
