Debbie, you don't mention when you'll be there, but that would factor into my decision. We went either the last week or August or the first week of September, when it was MORE than crawling with tourists. I mean, you walked through the rooms in a herd. I eventually got to the point I didn't care if we finished seeing it or not, I wanted out of there. If it was a slightly slower time, I think it would have made it easier for me. If we visit during the shoulder season again, we've thought about going back, but it left such a sour taste, I'm not sure.
And, no, I'm not the kind of person that minds crowds -- I've been to most of the major sites in London, Paris, and Rome, and you don't get to those without other tourists. No problem. Versailles was over the top.
