What shall I see

If you are spending your holiday in Paris but would like to visit historical monuments outside the city, this is the perfect opportunity. This one-hour-ride tour takes you to splendid castles of Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau. Vaux le Vicomte was designed by three masters: architect Louis Le Vau, landscape gardener André Le Nȏtre and painter and decorator Charles Le Brun. The château was built in the classical style of the mid-17th century for a high-ranking French official and superintendent of finances for King Louis XIV, Nicolas Fouquet. It served as an inspiration to Louis XIV for building the famous Versailles. During the tour, it is possible to visit Fouquet’s apartments, the state rooms, kitchens and vaulted cellars. After that, you have the opportunity to spend free time wandering through 86 acres of beautifully kept French gardens, sculpted bushes, lakes and flower beds in a variety of colors. Another option is to enjoy a meal on the lawns or in Vaux le Vicomte restaurant.

The other château, Fontainebleau, is the only royal and imperial castle that has been lived in non-stop for 700 years. This castle from the 12th century was the residence of French leaders from Francis I to Napoleon III. It was built in a variety of styles - medieval, Renaissance and classical - and later influenced by many of its inhabitants. In the guided audio tour, you can admire private apartments, luxurious French furniture and precious works of art such as the famous staircase or the throne of Napoleon I himself. This châuteau as well offers you a walk through extravagant gardens and the surroundings of the castle. The tour is set to finish at 5:30 pm and you are expected to be in Paris 45 min later.
