When the Grand Trianon was being made, one thing which the architects focused on was making the view from the Trianon beautiful. Thus, it was decided that the Grand Trianon Gardens would surround the building so every window gave a beautiful view of the flowers. This design philosophy can be easily seen in the beauty of the gardens. The royals claimed that just looking at the flowers made them want to leave the building and venture outside, while visitors who came after the gardens were completed, claimed the beautiful smells were absolutely overpowering. The gardens are maintained very well till today and are a beautiful sight. There are lots of things to do in The Grand Trianon Gardens as they are vastly different from the main gardens of the Versailles. They do not focus on sculptors and fountains, and instead the focus is on the flowers, and the fragrance around the garden is amazing, which makes it a lovely place to visit. The gardens will not take too much of your time, but if you’re visiting the palace of Versailles, then these gardens are a must visit because they’re amongst most beautiful things to do in the palace. It is also a great place for a photo session.
