What you’ll do

You’ll escape Paris’s bustle with your host and venture to the fairytale town of Fontainebleau. Begin your excursion discovering the favorite residence of French royalty for over 700 years - Château de Fontainebleau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (and possibly your new dream home). You will be dazzled by the opulence as you explore Marie Antoinette’s lavish Turkish boudoir and Napoleon’s theatre, learning all about the scandalous history of the French royals. Stroll through the perfectly manicured grounds and wander through the forest. Then, head to the charming neighboring town for some lunch. Known for its open air market (rumored to be the best in France - although this is a contested title and we’d advise speaking of it in hushed tones), the fromagerie which makes the iconic Le Fontainebleau cheese and a world famous patisserie, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing what to eat! Our advice? Eat it all. Peruse the town’s chic perfume shops and boutiques before your host accompanies you back to Paris after a day well spent.

PARIS, DAY TRIP TO FONTAINEBLEAUMyriam

March 2019

Wonderful Experience with Wonderful Local Guide

We had an unbelievable day with Myriam visiting Fontainebleau. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Paris. She met us at our hotel and helped us navigate the bus/train out to Fontainbleau. She walked us through the beautiful grounds of the estate and helped us get headsets for touring the chateau. She was friendly and conversational the entire time. Her English was fantastic since she studied in the USA for 4 years. We found talking with her very easy. Upon return to Paris, she helped us find a cafe we were looking for. We would highly recommend her to any travelers looking for a local guide to show them around. As an added bonus, she gave us a list of her favorite places to eat in Paris. The entire day was wonderful--you won't regret it.
