Waiting outside Versailles

Once I finally reached Versailles, I found some lines to wait in. First there was a short line to buy a ticket. I bought a ticket that gave me access to everything, though there were cheaper tickets for seeing only the palace. Then I got in line to enter the actual palace. The line was very long. Very very long. In the photo above, there is a very long line with about 4 people abreast. This line curved back and forth with 10 or 11 of the lines shown in the photo. I waited for slightly more than two hours in line. It was very sunny and hot, so I came back to my hotel with very red arms, neck, and feet (I wore sandals).
