There was a big log jam of people trying to see inside the Royal Chapel. This is a very crowded area but worth the wait for a clear view. Very colorful design. Too bad we couldn't see it up close.

How cool is it to have your own chapel in your place. To have your own dedicated pew in the church these days are kind of rare. Just imagine to have a priest or a minister to come to your place and perform a mass.....

The royal Chapel is the first stop for guided tours of Versailles, and is a magnificent beginning to your stay. Have a look from the second level receiving room -- the ceilings are stunning and the decorations are beautifully maintained. Each day the king (and members of the royal family) attended mass at 10 am -- apparently it had little... More

I went to the Jordi Savall concert on July 3, 2016 with 3 friends. From where we were sitting (the last rows of the hall), all we could hear was a blurred sound of instruments and voices all mixed up. All Savall's work and the musicians' art were completely lost. We sincerely think that the organizers should not sell tickets... More

Evrything is this palace is just beautiful, there is not a thing that isn't. Just to think that they had the skills and materials used all those years ago is mind-blowing. You could spend more time looking at it all if you weren't on an organised tour, however you do get a really good idea of the rooms and materials... More

Palace updates resulted in DH and I seeing the chapel from the middle level, so we could not see much of the details and the floors. Huge, brightly lit room from sunlight pouring through the windows onto the white pillars and and open spaces... seems a shame that the chapel was restricted to the royal family and its guests. Narrow... More

While Versailles was packed with people, most didn't realize the significance of this sight and it wasn't difficult to look out the door to see where the King sat during services, down onto the ground floor, and up to the magnificent ceiling. This may have been the only view that wasn't packed with visitors, which made it more enjoyable.
