The Opera hall in the Versailles gives the royal feeling, its stunning and amazingly beautiful, hard to describe in words. The details of the paintings on the walls is superb. Surely one of the highlight of Versailles.

The room was very nice, on the day we went you could just peek inside. It was quite busy. We did not purchase the audio tour, but those who did blocked the entrance- actually they pushed ahead..annoying

I did not really saw the opera as this was the part of the tour, but I did hear the rehearsal. The acoustics were amazing, and the opera itself a piece of beauty.

The Royal Opera is so beautifully done that it is to be seen to believe. Not sure if it is very popular amongst tourists but surely it is a marvel of beauty and design. It was a high point of my trip

The opera is as opulent as the rest of the chateau. We attended an opera concert at the concert hall and it was mesmerizing. A truly memorable event.

The grandeur and opulence of the architecture and design is impressive. Paintings (including ceilings) and sculptures by masters of the period - like a visit to a gallery and museum in one. Recommend use of audio guide during tour.

Amazingly, only 5 people were enjoying the Royal Opera, including us 2. It was a Saturday and there were 1,000's of visitors in the garden. The reason may be that signposting in the garden is not very well done, if at all present. There are...More
