It is less grand than the palace but it is still a beautiful and grand structure built for the king's mistress.

This is lesser known but it was the residence of Maria Antoinette. It is loated inside the extensive gardens and it's worth a visit if you visit the main chateau.

When touring in the Trianon area of Versaille, you'll enjoy seeing this palace. It is incredible on its own, but pales in comparison to the Versaille Palace. But, that's part of its history.

After the crazy pace of the main chateau, it was a pleasure to meander through these beautiful rooms, admire the artwork, and relax in the extensive gardens. There's a more laid-back, content pace at the Grand Trianon. It's not as large as the main chateau,...More

After finishing the tour of the main palace, we went to this Palace with high expectations but unfortunately, this place was poorly run by staff and most of the furniture, art and architecture was a few classes lower. However, it is still a good visit...More
