Parading through the French Senate

No, that is not Versaille. But yes, this is a castle! Or was a castle back when Catherine de Medici ordered its construction after she felt that the Louvre was too lonely for her. It is now the French Senate and has fully functioning post office, restaurant, hair salon, etc…in essence it is its own town! We had the pleasure of meeting and being led through the senate by Bernard Saugey who is in his last year of service and was a witty French politician. After the tour, we were led to the Luxembourg Gardens and enjoyed a lovely lunch in the gardens. Perfect day in Paris.
