4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
In the gardens of Versailles, Grand Canal forms part of a grandiose cross oriented to reflect the setting sun. The cross-shaped body of water creates a long perimeter of 5.5 km (3.4 mi). Louis XIV used to hold boating parties here, and now you can rent a boat to paddle yourself, or hire a guide to row for you.

  • Channel from where and to where? In my just part of the park ensemble. It was nice to see the white swans, ducks and very arrogant geese. Recent just attacked us in the desire to get the remnants of fresh baguette.
