Visitors swoon over the beautifully furnished Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte's interior, including its fabulous dome. In the vaulted cellars an exhibition looks at Le Nôtre’s landscaping of the formal gardens , where there are elaborate fountain displays in season. The collection of 18th- and 19th-century carriages in the château stables, included in the château visit, forms the Musée des Équipages (Carriage Museum). At weekends and school holidays, rent prince, princess or musketeer costumes for the kids (aged four to 12) to prance around in. Fun seasonal events include Easter-egg hunts.
