another visit to Versailles, the gardens and the parade to the Trianon are as lovely as ever, well worth the trip out from Paris, access is so easy too by local train

We spent the morning in the Palace and also had a walk in the gardens. After a pleasant lunch at La Petite Venise restaurant, we visited this part of the large estate. The Grand Trianon is grand. The Petite trianon is petite. Marie Antoinette's hamlet is very british in its design and outlook. After our visit, we took the mini... More

Less crowded, full of history and plenty to see. Much preferred as a trip to the Palace of Versailles grounds, and more enjoyable than the palace itself.

Great gardens to walk through. So many varieties of plants and tress. The buildings themselves are good but after the Chateau I suppose look quite ordinary.

The Trianons are okay, but the gardens and park around them is lovely and we really liked the Hameau, so peaceful and quaint. I definitely recommend exploring the area.

This is a much quieter area of the chateau, 30 mins walk or you can go by petit train or hire a bike or buggy. Don't miss it.

Beautiful thing to see : gardens and palace. But you cannot enter with stroller :( when you baby sleep, so you just can turn around the buildings... not very cool :(

With the attention surrounding the main palace at Versailles, it is easy to miss the underrated sights that are the Grand Trianon and the Petit Trianon. The Grand Trianon boasts elegant and tasteful interiors which provide a nice contrast to the imposing ones in the main palace, and even rival them in their own way. It was also the model... More

You must visit the grand Trianon and petit Trianon which although far from the main palace they are still on the estate grounds. The king had this built to get away from the main palace also hide his love affair. Although a small palace by comparison it had all the refinements of the main palace. The gardens complimented the building... More

Do the main Palace one day and the little Hamlet first thing in the morning the next day - get there before anyone else and wander around, it's lovely - like a Hobbit village! The Triannons were OK but we were "Palace'd out" by then and they were quite crowded inside as we had got there in the middle of... More
