Interesting but far too many people to make a real impression. No access, ie viewing the chapel from quite some distance. With hundreds of people behind you, taking the time to have a good look at everything that the chapel has to offer is impossible. Still, good to have seen it.

That was one of the amazing places we visited within the tour. The pillars and the capitals were gorgeous. The ornamentation and the paintings at the ceiling were stunning. It is the place for concerts besides worship time.. for the royalties.

The chapel today is awesome inspiring, so to imagine it 100 years ago, would have seemed like another world. It lives up to the grandeur of the cathedrals in France and in Europe and should not be missed

Acoustics in this chapel is outstanding, especially for organ and baroque instruments. We really enjoyed this concert and will come back anytime.

We only saw the chapel from the area where you pick up the audio guides. However, you can see the golden decorated walls, altar, and organ from that doorway. Also, the beautiful painted ceiling and marble floor. Visited Versailles in June 2012 & September 2013.
