Description

- Fontainebleau Palace The only royal château still inhabited for over seven centuries, Fontainebleau is one of the country's most exceptional palaces - rightly listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Château de Fontainebleau is also home to extensive gardens and lakes, so take time to stroll through the gardens. -Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte The impressive Baroque Château is said to have inspired the Château de Versailles. Discover elaborate interiors and vaulted cellars, and learn about the man behind this gigantic house, Nicolas Fouquet, King Louis XIV's Minister of Finance. After Fouquet entrusted the design of Vaux-le-Vicomte to a renowned architect, the king took offense and threw the minister in prison. When you've finished inside, stroll outside to discover the château's 40 hectares of fountains, flowerbeds and vast lawns. If you're hungry, grab lunch at the on-site café (at your own expense) before hitting the road for the return journey.
