THE EXPERIENCE

THE VISIT TO THE CASTLE OF VERSAILLES, THE LITTLE TRIANON AND THE GRAND TRIANON

This visit will allow you to appreciate several rooms and the most essential places of the castle and its domain:

  • The King's Grand Apartments, this prestigious seven-room area was meant to serve as a parade apartment, that is, as a venue for the sovereign's official acts. Therefore it was sumptuously decorated according to the model of former Italian palaces.
  • The Hall of Mirrors or "the Grande Galerie", as it was called in the 17th century, was used daily as a place of passage, and a waiting and meeting space for the courtesans and the visiting nobles.
  • The Grand Trianon: in 1687, Jules Hardouin Mansart built the Grand Trianon, probably the most refined group of buildings anywhere in the domain of Versailles, on the site of the "Porcelain Trianon", which Louis XIV had constructed in 1670 to escape the pomp and rigid formality of court life with his mistress Madame de Montespan.
  • The "Petit" Trianon, a place where Marie-Antoinette made her life far from the main chateau...

TICKETS FOR THE SMALL TRAIN IN VERSAILLES PARK: + 8€

Hop on the small train from the North Terrace, near the Castle and discover the gardens and Marie Antoinette's Trianon. At train stops, you can hop on and off from the train as much as you wish.

TICKET TO VISIT MARIE-ANTOINETTE PROPERTY: + 10€

Ticket for Marie Antoinette property will allow you to discover: the Petit Trianon, the theatre, the Grand Trianon, the Queen's farm surrounded by river, gardens, animals... Marie-Antoinette considered it as a place for calm and leisure, away from the strict rules of the Court.

THE GARDENS OF VERSAILLES

Enjoy your free time to stroll the magnificent French gardens designed by Le Ntre: nature is tamed, flowerbeds are geometric and the aisles are structured. The gardens are adorned with more than 400 marble, bronze and led statues and the fountains, ponds and terraces obey the laws of optical illusion, so the Grand Canal seems closer when standing at the foot of the castle.

If you rather not walk too much, visit the domain with the mini train. You can get off the train at any stop for a visit and get on the next train.

FOUNTAIN WATER SHOW and MUSIC GARDENS

On weekends and public holidays, the fountains offer a fabulous spectacle with Baroque music. The "Grandes Eaux de Versailles" show takes place on weekends from April to October and on public holidays, the "Musical Gardens of Versailles" takes place on Tuesdays from early April to mid-May and in July and August.

VERSAILLES HISTORY...

When the Versailles Palace was built, the city of Versailles was a country village; today it is a suburb, some twenty kilometers southwest of Paris. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the "Ancient Rgime" in France.
