The palace is closed Mondays so we went Tuesday, unfortunately the Tuesday we went was May 1 so they were closed then too! Anyway we spent a pleasant day strolling in the gardens, looking in the windows, and taking pictures of the outside.

Take an early train from Paris or you will be stuck in an extremely long line with crowded rooms once you get in! We got there at 8am. The doors opened at 9am, but it was worth it because we were one of the first...More
