Many people flock to visit the Palace of Versailles every year. But few take the time to discover the secret parts of this incredible place. Once your visit to the palace has ended, follow your guide and spend an afternoon exploring the beautiful hidden treasures tucked away in the expansive gardens. Away from the crowds, see places that only Queens, Kings and their closest friends were allowed access to.

King Louis XVI gave a key encrusted with diamonds to his beloved wife Marie Antoinette. This key opened the doors to a secret world, far removed from the public life at the palace that she so hated, and accessible to only a very few. The small palace of the Petit Trianon was her private world and the place where she was happiest. Let your guide take you on a journey in her footsteps, through the beautiful English style gardens that she created, into the elegant, intimate and charming rooms of her home, furnished today as they were then. You will also see her tiny theatre, built specially for her so she could perform on stage, to small audiences made up of a few friends and servants! This stunning theatre is often called the hidden jewel of Versailles.

At Trianon Marie Antoinette could live a simple, country life. Here you will also discover the last thing she had commissioned, a perfect replica of a Normandy village, complete with thatched cottages and vegetable gardens where, far from the elaborate life and rituals of the palace, she would play at being a shepherdess surrounded by farm animals.

No visit to Versailles is complete without seeing the hidden beauty of the Petit Trianon. At the end of your visit, your guide will escort you back to the Palace on the 'Petit Train' and then to the train station to continue your journey back to Paris.
