Versailles

Other highlights
The Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon, and Queen's Hamlet are in the North West corner of the park. If you don't want to walk, you can catch a tram from the North side of the building.
7. Petit Trianon - Another place for the King to go for some peace. A bed of geraniums runs the length of a lawn in front of the Petit Trianon villa, in Andre Le Notre's formal gardens at the Palace of Versailles. The royal villa, designed by Gabriel, was built for Louis XV between 1751 and 1768, and it later became a favourite retreat of Marie Antoinette. 6. Grand Trianon - Go inside if time will allow it. Conical topiaries punctuate the box-edged flower beds of Andre Le Notre's formal gardens in font of the Grand Trianon, at the Palace of Versailles, in France. The single-story royal villa was built in 1687 as a retreat for King Louis XIV of France.
Queen's Hamlet - Marie Antoinette built this so she could pretend she was a peasant girl.
Notre Dame of Versailles - This is the Big Church that you can see on your right just before you walk into the Front gates of the Palace.

The Kings horse stables ( Eucuries) !!! - The horses lived better than than many of the people. The horse stables are the buildings on the right and left side of the street just outside the Palace gates.
