    Is an attraction the part inside the Palace of Versailles. The wealth of your breathtaking decoration of any visitor. Pity that the area is blocked to traffic, and can only meet through huge gates.

    Access to this chapel within the Chateau is limited, so be sure to take the time when passing its entrance to take a photo of its beauty.  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.
