Beyond the gardens of Versailles lie the Trianon Palaces and the Estate of Marie Antoinette. Discover these areas where the French royals could be free from the pressures of court. Wander the palaces and gardens, taking in the beauty of your surroundings.


  • Wander the Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon and Marie-Antoinette's Estate
  • Discover the lavish rooms which were the refuge of French Royales
  • Explore the beautiful gardens, relaxing away from the main court


Starting with the Grand Trianon you can discover the estate of Marie Antoinette. As you explore the Grand Trianon that constituted Louis XIV’s second residence, imagine him escaping the protocols of the court here. Constructed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1687, this 'little palace of pink marble and porphyry with delightful gardens' was inspired by Italian architecture and you can picture the refuge it once gave the royals. Discover the lavish furniture displayed in the rooms which dates from the First Empire and testifies to Napoleon's many periods of residence at the Grand Trianon, with his wife the Empress Marie-Louise. Wander through the Petit Trianon and its park which are inextricably linked to the memory of Queen Marie-Antoinette. In her Trianon Estate, given to her by Louis XVI, she found a haven of intimacy that enabled her to escape court etiquette.


The Estate of Trianon after 12:00 PM The temporary exhibitions held in the Grand Trianon The Gardens – except on days with Musical Fountains Shows or Musical Gardens, and the Park The Coach Gallery, from 12:30 PM
