The presentation was well done!
This tour exemplifies Marie’s scrupulous preparation and research and engaging presentation style. I’d love to visit Versailles with her!
Marie Dessaillen does a wonderful job of unfolding the history of the Gardens of Versailles complemented with photos of the gardens from today. I have been to Versailles but by the time we got out of the palace there was only a couple of hours to try to experience the gardens. Marie helped make up for the lack of time we had that day. Using a combination of historical maps, photos and videos, Marie really brought the experience to life. It was an EXCELLENT virtual tour. I hope to go back one day and especially now with the insight of how they were built, what optical illusions I should look for, and for which of Louie's mistresses the smaller additions were built for.
I had the chance to visit Versailles a few years ago but it rained and rained so we did. Or get to enjoy much of the gardens. I feel better equipped to appreciate the illusions in the garden and much of the meanings with the statues.
