Marble everywhere "It has to be the most glorious and rich royal palace all over the world" demanded Charles of Borbonis.. but he was summoned to the Spain kingdom before the Reggia was over and never stayed there

and if the horse and the buggy are not your cup of tea, biking! Rent a bike ... you can even have a bike with a small engine helping you on slopes

The palace construction started in 1770and.. it is still going on unfortunately I am thankful people are working and taking care of it..though a sense of disarray and misery shows everywhere. I felt so unhappy and frustrated.. so much beaty and elegance and so much carelessness
