Exploring Chateau De Fontainebleau

9 comments
 Another day trip that we joined from Paris, was a visit to the Chateau De Fontainebleau, located in the town of Fontainebleau, France. Before it became a Chateau, it was a Castle built in the 12th Century. Then Francis I developed it into a renaissance Chateau which also became the favourite hunting chateau of the subsequent monarchs from Catherine de Medici to Louis XVI, Napoleon I to Napoleon III as it is surrounded by lush and massive forest. The Chateau has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visiting Fontainebleau was enchanting as this Chateau is so huge. It has massive halls and rooms one after the other. It is as huge as the Chateau de Versailles but without the long line ups and it has more art and furniture inside. It was worth a trip exploring the Chateau to learn about the different French monarchs and their stories when they lived in this Chateau.
