HD Guided Fontainebleau with Licensed Driver-Guide


Guided tour of the Palace of Kings and Queens


If you’re fascinated with the history of Kings and Queens, or just simply wish to admire a beautiful castle, then this tour probably for you.

Your private Licensed Driver-Guide will pick you up directly from your hotel, before heading 35 miles to the southeast of Paris. Direction Fontainebleau Castle, famously named by Napoleon as the ‘True Home of Kings, House of Ages’.

Located in over 130 acres of parks and gardens, Fontainebleau is the only Royal and Imperial Castle which has been continuously occupied for almost eight centuries: Most of the French Royal Families have lived and shaped this Palace that represents the evolution of French Architecture and Decoration from the Medieval period to the time of Napoleon.

You will stroll with your guide through the corridors once walked by the French Nobility for centuries, visit some (not all!) of the 1500 rooms that boasts the castle. Amongst these will include the Gallery of Francis I, the father of the French Renaissance, the ballroom of Henri II decorated by the most renowned Italian artists, the rooms of the Family Bourbon’s royal dynasty, and finally the apartments of Napoleon where you will see the last throne room in France, which has maintained all its splendour and magnificence.

Once your guided tour finished, you will pass from the King’s opulence to the colourful simplicity of Barbizon. This nearby village used to be mostly occupied by wood cutters, that was until Théodore Rousseau and Jean-François Millet decided to create a landscape painters’ School, attracting artists from all over the world. Thus, Barbizon became a magical place to find inspiration and the birthplace of the Barbizon School, a launchpad for the impressionist movement.
