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.

With a Paris Pass you can visit the Château de Fontainebleau for FREE – that’s a fantastic saving of over 5 Euros. Also, your Paris Pass will give you free access to over another 60 top museums, galleries, monuments and popular tourist sights in Paris

Take a stroll through the château’s beautiful, famous gardens in both the French and English styles, and enjoy a stress free sightseeing trip to Paris.
