Enjoy a half-day excursion to Fontainebleau to visit one of the greatest French châteaux and the only castle inhabited by sovereigns from the 12th to the 19th century. Napoleon was the great restorer of Fontainebleau castle. He completely refurnished it after the Revolution abdicating thereafter in 1814. In his memoirs, he did not hesitate to refer it as the “true home of kings”. The museum that embodies this imperial past is dedicated to him today. Fontainebleau is home to Renaissance masterpieces commissioned by Francis I, the refined interiors of Marie-Antoinette. Napoleon’s ceremonial house, the taste of Napoleon III and Eugenie. Witness the court life of the sovereign, official and private, Fontainebleau embodies the art of French living, better than anywhere else. The Fontainebleau palace and it’s 130 hectare gardens have been listed as world heritage by UNESCO since 1981.
No other chateau has witnessed so much drama, passion and key historical moments as Fontainebleau has. From its beautiful gardens to its fantastically carved galleries, this chateau will leave you breathless.
