About Chteau De Versailles Gardens And Park, Versailles

800 hectares of classical French Gardens.They really do stand separately from the palace as an attraction in their own right – they’re one of the most beautiful examples of landscaping known to man and receive over 6 million visitors a year (as much as the Louvre). If the beautifully kept grass and the tens of thousands of flowers weren’t enough, the garden’s charm is further demonstrated by its spectacular musical fountains. In the night, the music is added to by a spectacular light show.

List of fountains to check:

  • Latona
  • Bacchus
  • Mirror
  • Saturn
  • Appolo
  • Flora
  • Ceres
  • Neptune (99 spectacular water effects composition)
  • Dragon (27 metre high water jet)
  • Nymph’s Bath
  • Pyramid

Then there’s the Orangerie, a beautiful and symmetric citrus garden with 1055 trees, some of which are over 200 years old; the sculptures of America, the Seasons, the Sun Vase and the Rivers; walks like The Fountain Walk, The Green Carpet Royal Walk and the Water Walk; the mile long Grand Canal; and finally the enchanting groves: the Queen’s Grove, the Girandole Grove, the Ballroom, the King’s Garden, the Colonnade, the Domes and the Enceladus.

Chteau De Versailles Gardens And Park, Versailles Reviews - Write a Review

  • The garden is worth the visit. The palace is magnificent, but be prepared for lots people and not a lot of room to move. As you're working through the gardens, check out the restaurant under the trees for a delightful meal and a setting that cannot be beat.

  • Vast gardens which you can explore all day! If you're not a fan of walking at a leisurely pace, you can always rent a bicycle or golf cart which makes the trip a lot quicker.

  • This place is huge, though the actual gardens are somewhat smaller than the park itself. You can spend hours upon hours simply wandering around here (which is what I eventually did). Even then you simply cannot appreciate the scale of this place.

  • This place is awesome. You need at least 2 hours to see and enjoy everything. Better to rent a golf cart if you want to explore the whole place. If I have to choose, I will do this over the Chateau:). I think it's better come in springtime.

  • Arguably the best garden in the world. So so beautiful unfortunately I couldnt see all. Have to see it my friends camera. It needs a day to visit the entire garden. So plan accordingly. Trust me it will be an unforgettable experience..
