The train takes about 40 minutes.
The grounds are humongous and if you haven't bought your tickets ahead of time, you will have to wait on a stupid line. That's why I recommend you buy your tickets online. I also recommend getting there on the earlier side. It opens at 9:00 and we got there around 9:30, which was pretty perfect. There was definitely a crowd but it wasn't super huge.
Marie Antoinette, the Sofia Coppola film? It was shot on location so you get a real deal feel.
But the Queen's bedroom was my absolute favorite. If I could decorate my room like this, I totally would. I had a canopy bed as a kid and I was in love with it. I just love the idea of being kind of enclosed but not totally to a point where you're claustrophobic. I mean, that pale blue and the little pink flowers and the gilding and the fringe - it's every little princess-loving girl's dream.
Okay, so that's it for the actual Palace. Next, I'll be sharing one of my favoritest experiences ever: spending some time in Marie-Antoinette's Hamlet.
