Enjoy it even more than the palace!

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.

Yes they are worth visiting but if you are short of time not a priority. The Great is better; the Petit is interesting but not quite so attractive

Away from the palace grounds this area is much more serene and with fewer people allowing a more tranquil experience. There is an opportunity to spend a reasonable amount of time inside the residence(s) as the unique experience is meandering outside along the trails. This area is less extravagant than the main palace; however, beautiful in its own way. Overall... More

We visited here in October 2013. We decided to do a day trip as a previous half day trip was disappointing. So glad we took a whole day to visit Versailles as we had time to see the chateau and then hop on the transport taking us to the Trianons and Hamlet. These are quite amazing in their own right...

The two Trianons were much less opulent and also less crowded. They were more the less public time of the royalty. The Hamlet was built for Marie Antoinette as a way to escape as well as reconnect with her native Austria. It's a working farm with lots of goats, sheep, chickens and pigs. Lots of fun for the little ones... More

We had seen the Trianons the previous year so we visited the hamlet this time. It was a nice sunny afternoon and the whole experience was relaxing, almost a step back to when it was in its pomp. Make sure you also take in the farm, butting goats were comical. You could see why the queen spent long hours here,... More

If the Chateau de Versailles was meant to represent the masculine, public image of French royalty, then the Trianons would represent its feminine, more private side. Not that it was intended to even exist but Marie Antoinette's distaste for court life at the Chateau resulted in the Grand Trianon and the hamlet being built to serve as her retreat. Despite...

After going through the Palace of Versailles, we waked down and rented bicycles to get through the gardens Trianons and Hamlet. I did enjoy the bike ride and the buildings. The grounds were not as beautiful as others have commented, but I think it was because it was November and the fountains weren't on and the statues were covered. You... More

We took a tour called "Marie Antoinette’s Estate Tour" with paristoversailles.com , she told me she learn a lot about MA and enjoyed a tour in a very peaceful park full of lovely animals! Trianons et le hameau seems to be a must to see in Versailles!

You have to go to the Hamlet and the Trianons. I recommend it more than taking time in the Palace. Bring bread to feed the fish - it is terrifying and hilarious!
