What to expect

Discover two of the most beautiful and historically interesting Châteaux near Paris on this small-group day trip. You’ll visit both the lovely Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, where the "jardin à la francaise" was born and the regal splendor of the Palace of Fontainebleau, the only royal castle in France to have been continuously inhabited for 700+ years!

Vaux-le-Vicomte, with its deluxe 17th-century decor and outstanding French gardens, is enchanting; it is so beautiful that it directly inspired the Sun King to build the Palace of Versailles in order to rival it. You’ll learn about the captivating history of the estate and its past owners, wander through the perfectly ordered French gardens, and have free time to explore the Château.

The Château de Fontainebleau is unparalleled in its grandiose architecture and links to important events in the history of France. Featuring more than 1500 rooms, this sumptuous palace has been home to three dynasties of Kings, a Pope, and two French Emperors, including Napoleon Bonaparte. Explore its majestic halls, the extravagantly gilded rooms and beautifully decorated chapel, and discover its fascinating history.
