Romantic!

We spent a couple of hours here walking around, waiting for the crowds to lessen at the Chateau. Beautiful and romantic surroundings!

Forget the tower and all the other cliché's, Marie Antoinette's Temple de l'Amour in the magical Trianon gardens is the most romantic place in the Worlds most romantic city. Ask her under the Temples' ornate dome witnessed by Cupid for an unforgettable proposal!

After spending hours walking around Versailles we decided to walk around Marie Antoinettes beautiful gardens. The Temple of Love is perfectly situated and the whole area just oozes history. It was the perfect spot to propose to my girlfriend and luckily she said yes......I highly recommend the Versailles experience (although the queues can be a little off putting)

It's worth a short look on your way between the Hamlet and the Petit Trianon. Small and certainly not worth a special trip

The temple is a nice stop to sit down on your way around the Trianons and the Hamlet, but is not even the best gazebo at Versailles. Stop to see it if your going past it, but don't go out of your way.

This ornamental neo-classical Roman temple contains a statue of Cupid creating a bow from Hercules's club. In contrast to the grand but stuffily symmetrical gardens of the palace which Marie Antoinette was said to dislike, the English Gardens that the temple stands in appear manicured in a more natural style. The temple's position was designed to be seen from the... More

This is a lovely little structure that was probably built as a token of love for a birthday or something is just is so in keeping with how big everything is here

This is a lovely but kind of sad spot in the English Garden at Versailles. It took many years for Marie and Louis to forge their relationship together. This structure is a reminder of a very young woman's wish for love and romance amid all the fabulous beauty of Versailles.
