    Chandeliers need a wash but cleaning must be a nightmare. Vast, endless and worth walking the whole stretch to get area to yourself. Look at the marbles, fabrics and artistry. MUST.

    We toured the Grand Trianon but did not go to the Petit or Hamlet. Would have liked to do all three but ran out of time. The Grand Trianon was a great addition to the Versailles Palace Tour. It was a pleasant walk from the garden but trams were available as well. Worth the additional time

    Absolutely loved visiting this after visiting versailles. It is truly out of a fairytale. To bad you can not go inside to see but still very nice and beautiful.

    Such detail within the carriages, the death carriage was a real highlight. Good information displays and even sleds.

    Grand canal is a pretty big man made lake you can see from the gardens of Versailles - that's its longer hand.
    However, if walking along it you'll notice at the center it has two more hands making it look like a cross.

    Shopping a market is one of my most favorite things to do while traveling, this market tops my list and makes me want to buy a flat just to shop here all the time!

    While the Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the Versailles palace, this one is just as amazing and not to be missed.
    It's one of the longest, if not the longest one with huge paintings depicting France rich history through famous battles. The only downside (you cannot avoid) is the sheer size of paintings you cannot observe without being obstructed by so many people passing by or standing in front of you.

    Like in many other Chateaus this is a perfect layout of water features, precisely manicured lawns and trees and amazing symmetry.
    It looked beautiful even on a cold and cloudy Jan day.

    Spent approximately 30 mins here and that was enough time to take in the detail of the carriages, sleds, etc. I'm glad we didn't actually miss seeing this.

    there are days when the fountains have a musical show but we were not there for that but still found them beautiful with the intricate design features and the hundreds of sculptures. one of the first things you see when you are leaving the Chateau and are heading to the gardens.

    I am sure in it's day it was beautiful. I was unable to see the inside. The town really has progressed around tis building because you will find modern buildings very close by this gem.

    It is a beautiful building with a cute garden and water fountains. I really like the big statue of Christ (copy of Christus by Thorvaldsen) in the garden. The visitor center is an interesting place for the whole family with much to learn.

    Versailles Cathedral, built during the 18th century in a Neo-classical style. As all the tourists just seem to stick with visiting the nearby Palace there is usually no one around.

    La ferme de viltain, is part of a group of farms around that provide near house food directly to consumers.
    You can enjoy a sunny afternoon, go there with children and let them eat strawberries while you are buying fruit vegetables and diary
    There is a visit of the stable to show how milk is collected
    My children enjoyed a day out in the country side with cows, chickens, flowers and black currents.
