Fontainebleau Vaux le Vicomte Full Day Private Guided Tour from Paris

Vaux-le-Vicomte was created for King Louis XIV’s Minister of Finance, Nicolas Fouquet. Fouquet brought together the most accomplished French architect, artist, and gardener of his time to create France’s most magnificent castle and gardens.

The renowned architect Louis Le Vau, the artist and interior designer Charles Le Brun, and André Le Nôtre, the creator of the French garden, made up this dream combination. Vaux-le-Vicomte is so beautiful that it was used to film the TV show Versailles!

Fontainebleau, southeast of Paris, is noted for its sumptuous Fontainebleau Palace. The palace features Marie Antoinette’s Turkish boudoir, the Napoleon Museum, and a spectacular theater, and was built by French monarchy with elements dating back to the 1100s.

Its formal grounds include statues and attractive lakes. Fontainebleau forest surrounds the town and chateau, and is home to Le Grand Parquet, an equestrian stadium.

We normally return at about 6:30pm to the initial meeting place in Paris.
