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... From the Mirror Pool where you will be surprised by modern water jets mingling, crossing and embracing to the lights of the Colonnade Grove...From the Encelade Grove where you will discover the buried giant to Apollo's Bath where you can admire the sculpted groups of the Thetis grotto... From the Three Fountains Grove where the fountains' rocailles and shells, displayed over three terraces will enchant you, to the aerial effects of the Water Theatre sculpture fountains...As the high point of your visit, magnificent water jets, baroque choreographies and cascades of lights at Neptune Fountain, the largest fountain of the gardens of Château de Versailles. Your stroll will be interspersed with surprises and wonders.
