  • It is less grand than the palace but it is still a beautiful and grand structure built for the king's mistress.  more »
  • After discovering the interior of the Palace of Versailles, you will go to the gardens and stroll between fountains, labyrinths of plant walls, flower beds and arrive at the Grand Trianon, which is a mansion built in 1687 in place of an ancient refuge built by the King Louis XIV, when he wanted to be absent from the trendy festivals at the Palace of Versailles, and also to accommodate his affair, Madame de Montespan. The Small palace has influence of Italian architecture, where rose marble was used and its garden has French influence with flowerbeds in geometric shapes adorned with sculptures of children and vases. It was used by Dukes, Duchesses, descendants of King Louis XIV, Napoleon Bonaparte and other figures of high society. In 1963 General De Gaulle restored the rooms of this palace to receive statesmen. The Original furniture was lost during the French Revolution, and the current furniture is from the First Empire, but many of the paintings are remnants of 1688.

  • This is located in the northwestern part of the palace of Versailles, a smaller private Palace, has it's own garden and a bit less crowded. It's a bit too far for a walk so we took the small train.When we bought our ticket for the main Palace the staff informed us that if we added 2€ we could visit this place,so remember to keep your ticket with you. Worth visiting.
  • You can walk to this location within the palace of Versailles gardens. It’s quite far on foot so you’ll get quite a work out. There is a vehicle available to cart you there either private for hire or group golf cart. It’s nice to talk there if you want to see parts of the gardens on the way. The Trianon has its own gardens as well. The building is much smaller than the main palace.
