  • In the center of the garden is gorgeous and is a fountain. Ideal for taking in the back garden and Palace. It is admirable.

  • Large waters with a hesitant and sometimes insignificant flow, music that gets jammed in the groves, all with fat down papers and exhalations little pleasant from public toilets along the West side of the Castle, sadly a Sunday at the musical fountains of Versailles; The situation has deteriorated a lot for 4 or 5 years with unbridled mass harmful environmental tourism; Of course get the revenue to maintain the Castle and its gardens but at what cost of nuisances.

  • This was stunning by day listening to the classical music. But even better by night when the fountains were lit. Followed by a spectacular firework display.  more »

Where to stay in Versailles

Though you can visit the palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris, travelers interested in exporing outside the château should consider staying in the town of Versailles, Rambouillet, or Fontainebleau. All three of these boast historical centers and a number of accommodations for visitors, from swanky hotels to short-term apartment rentals. You may want to avoid the other nearby towns, like Senlis, which don't offer any lodging in their old town centers. To put yourself within walking distance of the grand palace, pick a spot along the main avenue in the town of Versailles. When staying here, you can experience first-hand what city planners took into consideration when building this new capital.
