Fontainebleau private excursion

Fontainebleau is a unique castle – very large, built and rebuilt in different times, it is a veritable patchwork of architectural styles and different eras that have profoundly marked the history of France. Walking through the castle is like walking to a set of time capsules, each of them representing a certain era, connected to a historically significant individual – most of French history condensed in one site. Also, the forest and the gardens are worthy of admiration in their own right.
