Fodor's Expert Review Académie Equestre de Versailles

Versailles Circuses

On most weekends (and on certain weekdays during school holidays), you can watch 28 elegant white horses and their expert riders perform balletic feats to music in a dazzling hour-long show directed by the great equine choreographer Bartabas. If you can't make the show staged in the converted 17th-century Manège (riding school), opt for a tour of the aptly named Grandes Écuries (grand stables), which take place Sunday at 10:30 am. Located opposite the palace, the structure was built for Louis XIV's royal cavalry.
