Choos the 5-hour option to visit the Château de Fontainebleau, a “family home” for the French kings and emperors, passed down from generation to generation from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Over 800 years of history is visible as much in the castle’s architecture as in its interior decorations, where Italian art and French tradition meet in a prime example of the artistic style of the School of Fontainebleau.

Your Private Guide will show you the most important features of the castle, including its vast gardens, the Chapel of the Trinity, Apartments of the Pope, Royal Apartments, the Napoleon I Museum, renaissance rooms, and the 19th century galleries. It is the most furnished of the French royal castles, featuring art, furniture and decor of the varying styles preferred by the sovereigns who lived here throughout the centuries, including Francis I, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon I. It is an absolute must-see for the fans of French history, culture and art.

Choose the 7-hour option to also visit the Château de Fontainebleau, and the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. The second castle is the largest private monument in France with a spectacular French garden that inspired the Garden of Versailles. During the tour, you will explore the private apartments on the 1st floor, the state apartments on the ground floor, the kitchen and Le Nôtre exhibition in the basements. Discover the splendor of the 17th century noble life and take a look behind the scenes of château life.
