Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
France is known for its magnificent chateaux and palaces. The Fontainebleau Chateau and the Vaux le Vicomte Chateau are two of the most majestic examples of both medieval and Renaissance French architecture. The Vaux le Vicomte inspired Louis XIV to build the beautiful city of Versailles. The chateau itself was conceived by three accomplished artists, Charles Le Brun, Louis Le Vau, and Andre Le Notre. The Fontainebleau palace has been inhabited for about seven centuries! This has resulted in several upgrades being made to the castle over the years by various monarchs of France. You can experience the true beauty of the place only by visiting it.
