Can you believe that Marie Antoinette slept here? Every time I toured Versailles I was told this is the bed and bedding that was on the bed so many centuries ago when Marie Antoinette lived here.
There have been many rumors and legends about her, but my tour guides always said they don’t think she ever said, “Let them eat cake.”
Anyway, this bed is actually in Versailles, not in the separate house you can tour on another part of the grounds. Look at the opulence of the room! No wonder there was so much animosity amongst the people.
I was irritated with this woman at the bottom of the picture. I stood on my tippy toes and tried to get a shot of this room without anybody in it but I was at Versailles during touristy season and the place was jam packed. It was literally so crowded I could barely walk.
I would recommend not going on a Saturday or a holiday.
Versailles is about a 40 minute train ride southeast of Paris. You can take a tour but I would say skip it and just buy the audio guide so you can go at your own pace.
I’m only showing you two pictures but Versailles is enormous and you will want to take your time so you can explore as many rooms as you can.
Have you been to Versailles?
