The smaller of the two Trianons on the grounds of Versailles, completed in 1768, it provided Louis XV and Madame du Barry privacy away from the main palace. Then later it became more closely associated with Marie-Antoinette as an escape from the rigors of life...More

This place is so quaint and interesting to visit. To think that Marie Antoinette cane here to play is fascinating. Look out for the giant water rats !!

I really loved the Petit Trianon! It was much more manageable than Versailles jammed packed with the extra large tour groups. It is not very big and as such easier to see. There were not that many people when we went so I was able...More

Be aware that this part of Versailles in the park doesn't open until midday. It's away from the crowds but quite a walk so be warned....

After a morning visit to Versailles, we visited the "Petit Trianon" of Marie Antoinette. Truly I was not sure if I was interested, but went along with our group anyway. The day was a bit chilly and a bit of rain fell intermittently which made...More

I bought the Paris Pass which gave us entrance to the Petit Trianon. We really used the pass often and it meant we didn’t have to wait in line at the sites we visited.
