The magnificent Château du Fontainebleau has been the main summer residence for French Monarchs for hundreds of years. Starting life as a hunting lodge in the 12th century, it was replaced by a Renaissance-style château in 1538 and subsequently enlarged by a succession of kings.

Napoleon famously described the Château de Fontainebleau as, "the work of centuries, the home of kings". He signed his first abdication here in 1814 and took leave of his army in the courtyard.

The interior of this stunning château is truly remarkable. Successive kings have left their marks on the furnishing, décor, paintings, tapestries and beautiful objects over the years, resulting in an overall feel of seemingly endless galleries, halls and boudoirs, each more sumptuous than the last.

Value for money. The Paris pass was great and we were able to visit many museums and attractions at a discount or free. We were also able to travel on the Metro for free! So go ahead and buy one and enjoy your Paris experience.

Great investment! My friend and I were grateful to be able to skip the lines at all the museums. I think we did the best of the city in 2 days!
