Versailles, Île-de-France, France
5 Kudos
You can not miss the gardens of the castle and those of Trianon and you have to take a whole day for them. And then make Trianon and the hamlet gardens. An enchantment. The gardens of the Grand Trianon are almost always calm and it is a very pleasant break, often also very flowery. Rather than spend resources on changing the gardens at Versailles, Louis XV - an avid botanist - devoted his efforts to Trianon .

In 1761 Louis XV placed an order with Ange-Jacques Gabriel to build the Petit Trianon as a residence that would allow him to spend more time near his botanical gardens. It was at the Petit Trianon that Louis XV fell ill with smallpox.
