The city of Fontainebleau has grown up around the remainder of the Forest of Fontainebleau. Fans of nineteenth century French history will find their treasure here in Foret de Fontainebleau, as it was the Palace of Napoleon and the old hunting grounds of the French royalty. You can feel the era of Napoleon’s time with the many furnishings and his personal objects.


The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a baroque castle located in Maincy, 34 miles southeast of Paris. It was built from 1658 to 1661 for Nicolas Fouquet, the superintendent of Louis XIV. Vaux-le-Vicomte was in many ways the most influential work built in Europe in the mid-17th century. The garden's use of a baroque axis that extends to infinity is an example of this style.
