Full description
Prepare to be whisked away to a magical world as the groves and fountains are decorated with a thousand lights, surreal illuminations, and wonderful bubbles. The Sun King's music follows you all along your stroll. For one evening, time comes to a standstill. At the Grand Perspective, admire the elegantly lit statues, topiaries, and pools. From the Green Carpet vibrating in the light of monumental torches to the Ballroom Grove where you can dance a few steps surrounded by thousands of candles, magic is everywhere. See the Mirror Pool where you will be surprised by modern water jets mingling, crossing and embracing to the lights of the Colonnade Grove and the Encelade Grove where you will discover the buried giant  Apollo's Bath. For a perfect ending to this evening watch as the fireworks magicians offer a royal fireworks display from the Grand Perspective, dazzling you with luminous beauty. To get the best views of the fireworks, sit in the middle of the Garden stairs, in front of the chateau.

    great fountain shows - beautiful lighting

    The castle and the gardens are wonderfully lit, the fountain shows are really breathtaking and with beautiful, stylish music. Compared to the day it was relatively full in the evening (part of the gardens is closed). The fireworks were very nice. Despite the large number of people, I would recommend the event simply because the gardens look so beautiful. The illuminated castle is beautiful.

    All worth it. The Versailles palace is astounding in itself and they would astound you more with the marvelous gardens with water fountain shows synchronized in unison to some hair raising classical music. At night Versailles changes itself to a more majestic look with all its lights shimmer the pure night sky. The 15 minute pyrotechnic show is the grandest of it all complemented with the dancing flames on the ground.

    A must see!

    This was our first time in Versailles and totally enjoyed the tour. My only recommendation was I did not fully understand where to meet and after several minutes realized we were simply to go through the gate and the tour done on our own. The night show was speculator and a must see! Be prepared to stand awhile as there are basically no seats unless you bring your own lawn chairs. The music, fireworks and fire show was well worth the trip.
