Used by the kings of France from the 12th century, the medieval royal hunting lodge of Fontainebleau, standing at the heart of a vast forest in the Ile-de-France, was transformed, enlarged and embellished in the 16th century by François I, who wanted to make a 'New Rome' of it. Surrounded by an immense park, the Italianate palace combines Renaissance and French artistic traditions.

This is one Palace you must see with your own eyes.
Spend most of the time in the gardens, and then take a boat ride on the pools for a few euros.
You need at least one day to see this!
We go to walk around the gardens and discuss life!
