Not sure that the visitor can have more than a view from the top floor, which is already to be done. As far as I remember, the visitors cannot go inside and pray for instance. We had the chance to be there for a concert of Charpentier with William Christie and it was incredible. Every single detail is beautiful, the... More

While the Chapel is visible through the doors on the ground floor and balcony, the best way to fully admire it's splendour is with a tour. It's not expensive and you can get tickets on-line!

It was a lovely chapel and thankfully no one was inside it. You could see it from the ground level and upstairs too. But had to queue to reach the rope up and down stairs.

The ceiling in here is just beautiful. You cannot go into the room, but you see it from the ground floor and then from the second floor while on the tour. Be sure to get photos of the ceiling and the altar too.

The Chapel is nice, but the story of the megalomaniac king and his behavior in the Chapel is the best part. Make sure you get the audio guide for free at the entrance of Versailles.

Sheer opulence in white and gold - that's the scene that greets the visitor when standing behind a barrier and peering into the ground floor of the chapel. But it's only an introduction to the rest of a palace worthy of the King of France. Naturally, the main focus of the chapel is the altar, embellished with gilded bronze. The... More
