Imbued with the essence of Louis XIV, Molière, Lully, Marie-Antoinette and many other historical figures, the Palace of Versailles is simply a magical place, and the enchantment is intensified even further during the Musical Fountains Show. This spellbinding spectacle takes place only about thirty minutes from the heart of Paris and your Roch Hotel & Spa!
The Musical Fountains Show embodies all the charm of Versailles
The name of the Palace of Versailles evokes thoughts of the Hall of Mirrors, the King's apartments, the Trianon and the Royal Chapel. But perhaps most of all it conjures up images of the fabulous park designed by the landscape architect Andre Le Nôtre that became the leading example of the French formal garden style. With their lengthy perspectives, carpets of verdant lawn, groves, carved boxwood, ponds and statues, the gardens of Versailles are a dazzling sight that is at once intimate and majestic. The Musical Fountains Shows present an opportunity to discover them in all their splendour.
Stepping into the past
Every Saturday and Sunday of the summer, the gardens are opened in their entirety. All the basins and fountains are filled with water and music from French history’s Grand Siècle period is played. From the sublime Neptune Fountain overlooking a breathtaking perspective to the most modest of the groves, a walk here takes you back in time and creates an unreal and fascinating atmosphere. You might also want to attend the Night Fountains Show, when exquisite illuminations and a spectacular fireworks display add to the magic. Book your tickets today on the Palace of Versailles website.
