  • A beautiful church, behind the heart there is a small chapel hidden.

  • History this magnificent Church should retain his style and do not welcome too flashy modern statues that shock aesthetics and destroy harmony. A historical reminder of its foundation on one of the pillars would be welcome. The priests are at the height of the place.

Where to stay in Versailles

Though you can visit the palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris, travelers interested in exporing outside the château should consider staying in the town of Versailles, Rambouillet, or Fontainebleau. All three of these boast historical centers and a number of accommodations for visitors, from swanky hotels to short-term apartment rentals. You may want to avoid the other nearby towns, like Senlis, which don't offer any lodging in their old town centers. To put yourself within walking distance of the grand palace, pick a spot along the main avenue in the town of Versailles. When staying here, you can experience first-hand what city planners took into consideration when building this new capital.
