My first time in Versailles was last fall.  I set aside a half day for the excursion, not being especially interested in the interior of the Château and decided to focus on the gardens instead.  Even then I probably would have stayed longer if I hadn't wanted to get back to see the Musée Rodin before close, the grounds were much more expansive than I had realized, and I feel like, similarly to Venice, the best way to explore would have been to allow time to get lost.  While I wandered for the most part, the area I was dead set on seeing was the Orangerie.  I love the beautiful scrollwork of the manicured lawns, and how perfectly every plant is aligned.  Also, midweek in October I was, for the most part, fortunate to miss out on the crowds, in this little tucked away part of the grounds
