For those who have ‘done’ the Château de Versailles, this new ‘Pass Marie-Antoinette’ enables you to visit 4 other monuments that also have a strong connection to the life and death of the young queen.
Le Chateau de Rambouillet is an impressive royal residence Louis XVI bought for her. Later she was imprisoned and held for several months in the Conciergerie up to the time of her execution.
La Chapelle Expiatoire was dedicated to Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette and was built on part of the Madeleine cemetery where most of the bodies of those executed in the Revolution were buried in a mass grave. However, Marie-Antoinette’s body was moved to the Basilique Cathédrale de Saint Denis, a gothic masterpiece and final resting place of all bar 3 of the French kings and queens, in 1815.
Ask for the ‘Pass’ when you buy a full price entrance ticket at any of the 4 monuments. The entrance price to the other 3 is reduced by at least 20%. The Pass lasts 2 years, you can take your time !
Look forward to seeing you. BOOK HERE…
