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

The walk up to the Grand & Petite Trianon estate is well worth it and a must to appreciate just how extensive the Palace and grounds extended. A relief from the hustle & bustle of the Palace, it is a more modest building, still grand...More

Very roman and greek influenced architecture. Not far from the Petit Trianon (aka the little cottage). Be sure to walk the gardens out back and along the waterway.

We visited in May and were blessed with the weather. It's quite a walk from the Palace though so bear in mind and doesn't open until midday.
