It was French kings’ favorite residence for around 800 years. Napoleon I said that the Palace of Fontainebleau was « the
true home of kings, the house of ages ». Since 1981 on Unesco’s World Heritage list, the Palace is not only an incomparable historical site but also an architectural jewel.

staircase, an emblematic part of the palace, and all along the tour you will also admire the Galleries, all equally sumptuous,
and the Apartments.
Then, the Chapel will captivate you. You will end this royal tour at the parkland where you will visit a French style garden and two English style gardens.
