Visiting Chateau de Versailles during covid-19

Bonjour!

Let’s talk about Chateau de Versailles and its gardens. The palace was built in the 17th century during the reign of Louis XVI. Did you know it was a hunting lodge before it was a palace? Everything about it is grand. The fabric, furniture, paintings and architecture within the palace are magnificent. Many of the rooms were the definition of “all gold”. You won’t be able to miss all the mirrors, which used to be a sign of wealth. The gardens are just as impressive as the palace.

Visiting Pena Palace in Sintra, Portugal

When we visited Lisbon, our hostel proposed to go to Sintra. We had no idea it was so close to Lisbon. We hopped on the train since we had no car. The ride took about 45 minutes. Also, the train ticket was only 4,50 euros. So it’s very cheap to go and so worth it! We only had a day, but we easily could have stayed a day longer.
When you arrive at Sintra station, you can walk towards the centre. It’s not that far, just a bit uphill. There is also a bus stop next to the station if you want to go straight to one of the castles. I recommend taking the bus and not one of the hundreds of tuk-tuks as they’re more expensive.

One day in Verona, Italy

Verona is well-known over the whole world. The city has Shakespeare to thank for that. I think it’s safe to say that everyone knows the story of Romeo and Juliet. And yes, the city is truly as lovely as the story goes. Only nowadays, Verona is a little more touristy. Nonetheless, it’s one of my favourite cities in Italy!
We visited Verona as a day trip, so we mainly had to limit ourselves to the tourist highlights. Luckily, we had just enough time to explore some of the little streets in the inner city too.

This is also Verona.
