The upholstery in Napoleon's apartment is beautiful, thank you for showing it in great detail! I also want to thank you for the new uploads, I've been a fan since childhood and I love that the Rick Steve's team made the videos available on YouTube.The sites in "Paris Side-Trips" and the Château's in "France’s Loire: Château Country" have been added to my visitor's list!

Definitely one of my favorite videos thus far! Beautiful, opulent and absolutely over-the-top. I can't help but think of all the amazingly talented artisans and craftsmen that spent years creating such intricate and gorgeous architecture and decor! Such fabulous historical treasures!!!

Also I have a degree in Divinity.  So actually the floors are crosses as are the windows and the mirrors are cross in designs.  And the ceiling it was not someone who decided just to paint people.  Now if you are clairvoyant you can ask God to separate the clouds to see the people and to show heaven which is drawn on your show 6:43 parts of the Hall of Records is shown on the ceiling there.  Yes you can see that all the time if you look up after praying a lot with angels around you.  In France they just painted what they saw.  All the churches had similar paintings…… the ceilings are not someone's imaginations they are real just seen by painters who work for Kings and Queens.  All of the white and the Gold it to make the Building more Divine for its purpose on earth as in Heaven to rule with a lot better advisers…. was the plan people don't know that it was only told to the inside groups.  As you see the mirrors are also doors…….

Foie gras really? Foie gras is the liver of a duck or goose fattened by force-feeding corn with a feeding tube. Just so you know. If you don't, then you should read about it. If you do…

you have the best job in the world

GGauche · October 1, 2017 at 9:20 pm

The opulence is breathtakingly arrogant! Great video, but not even a mention of the labyrinth at Chartres, surely one of its most interesting features.

Dito R.franco · October 30, 2017 at 8:13 pm

Ótimos Videos,

Europe has become one giant city. So few unspoiled natural open spaces left. Human Overpopulation out of control.

peter tuann · January 29, 2018 at 9:36 pm

now that you mentioned quietness, you are correct, Asian restaurants are way too loud. I agree with the English, keep your voices down in public.

The production of foie gras (the liver of a duck or a goose that has been specially fattened) involves force-feeding birds with more food than they would eat in the wild, and more than they would voluntarily eat domestically. Their necks and heads are squeezed as large metal rods shove food down their throats in an extremely painful process for the birds. I LOVE your show and all the positivity you bring to viewers around the world with your travels.. but it's unacceptable you are endorsing the torture of innocent animals by encouraging people to eat foie gras. If anyone wants to see the torture these birds endure just google image foie gras. In a world full of tons of protein options why endorse the horrible useless suffering of another sentient being. Would you want someone doing this to your dog or cat? Would you want your neck and head squeezed with a metal rod shoved down your throats pushing tons and tons of food in there after your full? Ducks and geese have all the same emotions as humans, dogs and cats. It's been scientifically proven all animals experience a wide range of emotions including pain.  Please have your editors review your content more thoroughly in the future, thanks.
