Versailles Musical Fountains - every Tuesday in the summer?

Jump to last reply

I am having a problem interpreting when the fountains run in the summer on Versailles. I know it is the weekends, and it seems to be most Tuesdays as well.

Here is a cut and paste from their site:

Musical Fountains Show

<<<<<Set out to explore the fountains and groves with their water features spouting to the rhythm of music. Several circuits are available to enable you to enjoy the numerous masterpieces of the gardens or lead you to their most secret spots.

<<<<Saturdays and Sundays from 5 April to 26 October 2014, Tuesdays from 20 May to 24 June 2014 as well as on some additional dates (Friday 18 April, Thursday 8 May, Thursday 29 May and Friday 15 August 2014).

<<<<<<The fountains are activated at weekends and on public holidays from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 3:30 to 5:00 pm (Neptune Fountain from 5:20 to 5:30 pm). Also on Tuesdays and on 29 March from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:30 to 4:00 pm.

It seems to define only certain Tuesdays in the first paragraph, but says all Tuesdays in the second one? Or is it only certain times on Tuesdays?

Has anyone been there on a Tuesday in the summer in July and seen some of the fountains running?

I would love to see this - we could visit on a Tuesday, but not on a weekend.

Thanks for any insights,
