Château de Fontainebleau

Château de Fontainebleau is just 55 kilometres from the center of Paris. This massive palace has over 1500 rooms sprawled out on 130 acres of gardens and parks. It's one of the largest royal French châteaux to have ever been built.

Fontainebleau was much loved by Napoléon Bonaparte, who oversaw a lot of the restoration work. Napoléon III was another regular visitor, but as an example of the changes it has seen, during WWII the château was a headquarter for occupying Germans. It's now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Easy to purchase with no hassles. The château was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed it better than Versailles. If I could give one suggestion that would be I wish they could take care of the place a bit better. Some of the glass boxes holding the antiques were covered by dust and fingerprints. Nevertheless, highly recommend to visit this gorgeous place.

We were visiting from New Zealand this time we chose to visit Chateau de Fontainbleu. It was quite a different experience to Versailles, but just as magnificent in a different way. Certainly not the crowds at Versailles which probably made the experience better.
