This is another little place next to the Grand Trianon. It's charming and cosy. You can combine it with the Grand Trianon and the main palace.

We found this to be simple and not furnished well when touring, and compared to the Grand Trianon. When touring this part of Versailles, its still worth the visit.

The most amazing part of the chateau, the Petit Trianon is just beautiful. Do the tour which costs an extra €10 and you’ll get to tour the Trianon main rooms in addition to the closed areas. Magical.

We especially enjoyed seeing this private retreat that the Queen enjoyed with her friends and ladies in waiting. It is actually cozy in contrast to the massive palace in the distance. The gardens are beautiful and a bit more wild in comparison to the formality...More

Le Petit Trianon was lovely! Far fewer crowds than Versailles palace, it was easy to navigate and there was plenty of space to stop and enjoy the beauty. I could really envision Marie Antoinette spending time there and hosting her friends. I like that the...More

Although smaller in name, there is still plenty to see in le Petit Trianon. The extensive renovation works are noticeable but there is still plenty to see in the rooms that are open. The grounds are extensive, calming and immaculate. Well worth the long walk...More

I bought the Paris Pass which gave us entrance to the Petit Trianon. We really used the pass often and it meant we didn’t have to wait in line at the sites we visited.
