What to expect

Discover two of the most beautiful castles in the Paris region. You will visit the castle of Vaux le Vicomte and the palace of Fontainebleau with your audioguide.

Your tour starts with the visit of Vaux the Vicomte, a masterpiece of mid-17th Century classical architecture. The château and its grounds were created by three talented artists: André Le Nôtre, Louis Le Vau, and Charles Le Brun. The commentaries offer you an experience with 3D sound that gives your visit to the castle a whole new dimension. End the tour at the dome of Vaux le Vicomte to contemplate the superb view over the castle park and take time to stroll in the splendid French garden.

You'll have some free time to have lunch on the lawns or at the restaurant on the site of Vaux le Vicomte.

After lunch, you'll head to Fontainebleau (45-minute ride), the only royal and imperial château to have been continuously inhabited for seven centuries. Follow your audio guide and explore the richly furnished château, its unique collections, and key pieces such as the throne of Napoleon I and the famous horseshoe-shaped staircase. After the tour, explore the huge grounds surrounding the château, as well as its three picturesque gardens.

You'll leave Fontainebleau at 5.00 pm and be back in Paris around 6.15 pm.
