After the musical tour (see previous post), you can finish the evening at Versailles by a visit to its gardens and awaiting the Musical Fountains Show, which starts at 9 pm, just walk around.
The evening when I was there the gardens were filled with people who later would attend a masquerade ball and this added of course a lot to the atmosphere.
So, at 9 pm, the water show starts.
The fountains are spouting water to the rhythm of music played by well hidden loudspeakers. Some fountains are of course more spectacular than others, like the Apollo one. (The “funny” trees you can see here and elsewhere in the park are by the Italian artist Guiseppe Penone and are part of a temporary exhibition.)
Look at the different marble colours here.
This is supposed to represent one of the Greek Gigantes, Enceladus. Looking at his hair from the backside, I see the head of a lion.
Here are some of the other fountains.
Slowly the dark arrived…
… and at 11 pm the show finishes with fireworks.
