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.

It was a great decision to buy the Paris Pass and I recommend it to others. The Paris Pass was very useful to our enjoyment of Paris. We used it daily and went to some places that we probably wouldn't have chosen or known about if we had not had it. Paying for all of this in advance freed us from having to constantly purchase tickets, exchange money and carry a lot of cash. We felt it was a good value and so easy to use. My advice, purchase a Paris Pass to enhance your visit.
