What to expect

The Night Fountains Show in the splendor of the gardens of the Palace of Versailles is your personal invitation to the opulent past, an ultra-modern re-creation of the great parties of Louis XIV, which were lit entirely by candlelight. Every Saturday evening in summer, from 8.30pm to 11pm, the fountains in the stunning French gardens of the extravagant palace of the Sun King come magically alive, stunningly lit to the sound of baroque music, the very sounds Louis himself delighted in. Take a stroll through groves between the fountains, discovering architectural surprises and distinguished sculptures, made new by the latest LED lighting, imitating the atmospheric glow of candlelight, warming the statuary and foliage with warm hues. The 21st century magicians at Groupe F have somehow made the garden's Green Carpet vibrate, with huge flames appearing in rhythm. The evening is crowned with fireworks fit for a king, a thrilling multicoloured display in the garden that was the Sun King's fantasy world, created using the genius of architects, sculptors and landscapers, all at the service of a megalomaniac, a visionary monarch.
