A Tour of Versailles...

This afternoon I took a leisurely stroll through Versailles, passing through the Hall of Mirrors and admiring the hangings in the Queen's Chamber...without even leaving my chair! Via the Google Art Project, you can now take a virtual tour of Versailles and other famous museums. You navigate using arrows to get a panoramic view of each room and can even zoom in close to examine the artwork on the walls.  Not a bad way to spend a snowbound afternoon :)
