In every European history class I’ve ever taken, I anxiously await the chapter where we study the French Revolution so my mind can wonder to the Palace of Versailles as my hand takes notes on the guillotine and Voltaire. I imagine I’m Marie Antoinette (or at least Kirsten Dunst in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette).
There is something about the lavish, ornate French style that seems so magical to me. I would love to visit Versilles and walk through the Hall of Mirrors, which is apparently packed with lots of tourists who share my vision. But now I can do one better and sleep like a King, since one of the buildings of the palace has been made into a luxury hotel!
Look at this post’s beautiful photos of inside the palace.
