...But with my head intact. The self-guided audio tour of the Petit Trianon was fascinating, but I especially loved wandering around Le Hameau. Marie Antoinette's "farm house" is more lodge-like, and is currently surrounded by barricades due to construction. Its outside spiral staircase has actually collapsed, so I was pleased to see restoration efforts underway. I was also pleased to... More

Many people also forget to go and visit the area down in the top right hand corner of Versailles, past the lakes. You really have to finish off the story where Marie Antoinette played the milkmaid. If you have seen the French version of 'Le Mis' you will recognize that they used this scene very early in the movie. Overall... More

It's worth the walk and you can opt for a ride on the train-like shuttle or rent a golf cart. The Versailles grounds are huge so even though within it would seem like a "getaway" from the big palace.

Try to drive there - ask how as its a long walk from main chateau. Locals bike and picnic there but need tic to enter buildings. Hamlet is an active farm which... More

Went here before the main palace. It was roomy and very bright. You could see all the artefacts and got a sense of the history of the time.

We took a bicycle tour of the grounds with the Blue Bike Tours and it was amazing. We had a full day in Versailles so we got to see the Chateau and the grounds. Le grand et petit Trianon are beautiful and worth the visit. Great place for different photo ops! Visit the Chateau later in the day, less crowded.

These are fr from the palace but worth the trip. Not so many loupe. You can also rent a golf cart for four people to drive out to the trianons.The Hamlet is well worth the trip very beautiful setting on a lake and makes you realize how Marie Antoinetteloved the countryside.

After the crowds of Versailles Palace, it was a relief to escape into the palace gardens where a pretty walk takes you to the The Grand Trianon and The Petit Trianon. Both are well worth a visit. The Grand Trianon is obviously the bigger of the two, highlights of which include Napoleon's bedchamber and the Mirror Drawing room. Personally, I... More

Love both the grand and petit Trianon, without checking out those two, you won't get a complete look into Louis XIV, XV, XVI and Marie Antoinette's dramatic lives.
