Breathtaking

This was quite a sight, such opulence. I believe this chapel was only used by Louis XIV for a few years as it was completed in 1710 and he died in 1715.

is a nice place to see inside the castle, however you can only see it from the door as no one is allowed to enter. No furniture can be seen inside.

This is a cordoned area within Chauteau de Versailles where one could only view from afar. It looks golden and I can only imagine its grandeur. Would be better if can see it from up close.

The Chapel has been reviewed many times, so there is little need to add my opinion here. Rather, I would like to make a plea for visiting the Chapel on a guided tour, because this is the way to get INSIDE the Chapel, rather than just getting the frontal view through the main door. We went on a tour, and... More

We were unable to gain entry to the Chapelle Royal which has been described as the finest Baroque building in France. The view from the door allowed glimpses of white marble Corinthian columns and the decorative murals that ornamented the ceilings. We would like to return and tour the chapel or attend a concert here.

Very nice part of the museum in Versailles, tough you cannot go in (you look in from the outside). Go here!

The grandeur of this chapel and its beautiful ceiling is quite spectacular. I first saw this 25 years ago and never forget its beauty.

Yep, that is the view you get. It would be great if more access was available. Otherwise we really enjoyed the Chateau. Chose off season and it was very comfortable to wander around. Are tempted to return again to see the gardens in all their glory.

Acting as a true cultural centre and not just eye candy, Versailles has always been a place for entertainment ever since it was rehabilitated as a magnificent palace by the Sun King from its beginnings as a hunting lodge that his father had had built on the site. Note that Louis XIV himself was an accomplished dancer who dazzled everyone... More

This is only accessible with a private rooms tour. It is only 7Euro extra. What a bargain! This is a fantastic site to see
