Grounds of the Palace of Versailles Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Starting at the terrace of the Château de Versailles, you can explore the grounds on foot, by horse-drawn carriage or in a small boat on the Grand Canal. The rectilinear Axe du Soleil, with its water parterre, fountains, statues (such as the Diane Goddess of Hunting by Desjardins), the Bassin de Latone (pond) and the Tapis Vert divide the grounds. On both sides, the copses bring a touch of magic: ponds, colonnades, fountains, sculptured groups, flowerbeds and pathways lined by canals. Enough to spend a whole day! Don't miss the Grandes Eaux show.

    Pros

    Les grandes eaux musicales ont lieu certains jours l'après-midi à partir de 15h30. Les fontaines sont alors en marche sur fond de musique baroque. L'été il y a même des jeux de lumière et feux d'artifice. On peut emprunter le petit train pour faire un tour du parc ou même louer des golfettes électriques.
