Description

The life of this Austrian princess, married at age 14 to the future Louis XVI, then guillotined during the French Revolution, still fascinates today. Her fate has made her an icon. To learn more about this great historical figure, take advantage of the Pass’ Marie-Antoinette. How it works? You buy one single ticket which enables you to visit four monuments that played a role in the making of her legend.

A singular fate

Start with a visit to the queen’s old haunts reminiscent of happier days, the Laiterie de la Reine, or Queen’s Dairy, and the extraordinary Chaumière aux Coquillages, or Shell Cottage, built for her friend, the Princess de Lamballe. Located in the park surrounding the Château de Rambouillet, both places are packed with history.

Next, relive her final, tragic hours at the Conciergerie, on the Ile de la Cité, where she was imprisoned during the Revolution. Touch pads called “HistoPads”, will have you travelling back in time, thanks to a 3D reconstitution of the queen’s dungeon.

Built at the location of her first burial, the Chapelle Expiatoire or Expiatory Chapel, is a stirring tribute to Marie-Antoinette. Inside you’ll find a reproduction of her moving, last letter to the king’s sister.

Lastly, the Basilica of Saint-Denis is a jewel of Gothic art, and the queen’s final resting place. She lies here, among the kings and queens of France.
