  • The Royal Chapel in the Versailles is a beautiful piece of the Palace, which is unfortunately out of bounds for normal tourists. Entry to the palace was barred and we could only take pictures standing...  more »
  • I had read so much about the chapel and opera house I had really want to see them. While you can SEE most of the chapel, not being able to go in was really a disappointment. Yes it was impressive but ...  more »

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.
