The gardens out back were absolutely stunning. Reminds you that Versailles used to be the royal hunting retreat. There was a music show at the Fountain of Mirrors, and they were piping some stock Baroque piece throughout the garden. The Apollo Fountain was stunning; unfortunately, it was shut off, as were all the rest of the waterworks. A great example of the classic French-style garden, it's indeed a peaceful, calming place. In many ways, a much more significant achievement than the palate itself.
