it is a pretty chapel but unfortunately you cannot go inside, what you can do is just take a peek from the outside, you will see it anyway when you go to versailles, it is like the first stop u will go.

This was included in the tour of the Kings apartments. It was cordened off but our guide just moved it aside. If you are not on a tour you are not allowed past the barrier. This alone is reason to take the tour.

This room, located inside the Palace of Versailles, is clearly beautiful. The architecture is amazing, and completely awe inspiring. However, you are only able to view this from the front doors of the chapel, as access is cordoned off. Therefore you are unable to walk...More

Most antique churches in Paris are more impressive than this chapel. I found it overrated and simply not worth the time.
