Your experience

Highlights

  • A luxurious retreat for French royalty
  • Explore chapels, galleries and guest apartments which would have been used by French and visiting royalty, and see Marie Antoinette's bed, Napoleon's throne and more!
  • Wander through over 1500 rooms and 130 acres of parkland and gardens, visit the museums and feel what it must have been like as a king or queen growing up here

Description

You can look at all the historical dramas you like, but Keira Knightley and Co. can't get at what it must have been in the Château de Fontainebleau. This sovereign residence for eight centuries was home to all kinds of splendour and grandeur. The walls cannot speak, but they can show you how it was during the weddings of the French royal family. Get priority entry and avoid the snake (just as royalty would have done).

The Château de Fontainebleau, surrounded by 130 hectares of beautiful parks and gardens, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981, although the first documentary mention was made in a royal charter in 1137. A visit here means enjoying the imperial atmosphere.

You will be impressed by the opulent furnishings of the superior apartments designed for Napoleon III's court. See Marie Antoinette's bed, Napoleon's throne and François Gérard's portrait of Empress Josephine in her coronation regalia in 1807. Stroll through the galleries where the courtyard meets, claps and promenades, and visit three decadent chapels and four art museums.

Napoleon himself renovated the castle after the revolution in 1814 and described it in his memoirs as "the true home of the kings". Louis XIII spent a happy childhood here and learned how to hunt, play tennis and draw. With over 1500 rooms, Château de Fontainebleau was and is a magnificent labyrinth of French beauty, history and architecture.
