  • The "little" chapel inside the Versalles is carefully adorned and conveys a sense of Royal pomp and circumstance, even though this is much smaller and more intimate than the Palace's Grand Church.

  • A guided tour is best, and again access to a near bathroom is an issue. A lot of walking will be involved 
  • The private chapel of the Kings of France is something extraordinary. Here too the opulence is the master of the scene.
