Palace of Fontainebleau

Highly recommended
This château is both evocative of the Renaissance, by its famous horseshoe staircase, and of Napoleon, with the poignant scene of his farewell to the faithful soldiers of the Old Guard. The castle's iconic highlights include the Cour d'Honneur, the Napoleon I Museum and the magnificent private apartments, home to the exquisite Galerie François I. A tour of the gardens rounds off a visit to this property, steeped in history since its foundation in the 16C.
