What You Can Expect
The extraordinary gardens took about 40 years to complete; appreciate just how detailed the features are as you explore the 13 different groves, the Grand Canal, the fountains and the numerous marble statues. Admire the meticulously trimmed trees and bushes, and wander off to find plenty of space away from the crowds.
Get the most out of your visit during the two periods a year (March 29 to May 17 and July 5 to October 26, Tuesdays only) when the groves and protected areas of the gardens are accessible for a ‘musical stroll’ – an opportunity to discover the gardens in a special Baroque setting with classical music. The music is played between 10am and 6:30pm. You can also see the musical fountains in the Bassin du Miroir every 10 minutes from 10am to 6:30pm.
You will receive a complimentary map so you can easily find your way through the gardens’ many routes.
