Favorite in Versailles!

I liked the palace but I loved the Trianons and the Hamlet. They were beautiful and not as manicured as the others.

Cute in the sense that it is astonishing the the France Royalty build their own version of a play world. The Queen's Hamlet resembles Hobbiton more than a little but it is a beautiful place to visit. Love the idea that the toilets are situated within one of the 'rustic' buildings. A very photogenic area. The Trianon are also very... More

Don't miss the Trianons when visiting Versailles. It is quieter than the main palace and beautifully located.

Not as opulent as the Grand Apartments but is a great alternative to visit away from the massive crowds at the main attraction. My wife & I preferred the Trianons more due to the peace & quiet afforded to us here and actually being able to take photos and stroll through at our own leisurely pace, though the displays in...

This is smaller compared to the main palace and is located after the gardens, not as impressive as the palace but should not be missed if there is an opportunity.

Even if your feet hurt, (which they should actually......poor things) and you cannot move anymore, the trip to the trianons and especially the hamlet is simply unmissable. This will definitely be the highlight of your Versailles trip. I didn't find the trianons to be that impressive but the walk to the hamlet was so scenic (jardins anglais) that you will... More

I and my friend were well dressed, and accordingly, admitted to areas that are not usually allowed. We are unfailingly polite and we receive this treatment in return. This small palace is a true jewel box. The architecture is so beautiful that is Heaven is not built this beautifully, I will most hastily return to Trianon! The garden is sublime.... More

A very nice spot to explore and reasonably priced compared to other parts. While dwarfed by the main palace the Trianons are large and sprawling in themselves and the hamlet is a fantastical fantasy location which will enthral children and adults alike.

From the Palace, get on the tram (7,50 each person) as the walk is long. This area was fully restored by order of General de Gaulle in 1965. The tile work and pink and white marble columns with ionic capitals are gorgeous. The molding in the ceiling is amazing. The gardens were out of season, but still perfectly maintained. Later,...

Both the trianons and the hamlet were just so lovely. The little train or you can cycle brings you in contact with these lovely and charming places. wear sensible shoes as there is so much of walking to do and so much to see and marvel at.
