A Tour Of Fontainebleau Castle | France


The sun is coming back, so isn’t it the perfect weather to wander around Fontainebleau Castle ?

Last summer I went to visit Fontainebleau Castle with my friends for a day trip. While it might not be considered as luxury as Versailles Castle for some, I can tell you this is worth it. You can actually really enjoy your visit with the plenty of nice rooms and arts you can find in the castle without having to deal with a huge crowd of people and wait hours.

Fontainebleau castle was built during the XIIth to XIXth century and was home for several royals. Mostly remembered as Napoleon the 1st second property.

When you first get off the bus you have to through a vast garden before you actually make it to the entrance of the castle. You can sit on one of the many benchs to enjoy a snack or your lunch. Or just enjoy the view !

Every pieces and rooms are very well explain however if you don’t like to read you can get the audio tour option for a couple more euros.
