Île-de-France Things to Do: 32 reviews and 74 photos
Fontainebleau town (pop.20K) is 60 km SE of Paris (Seine-et-Marne, #77). There are 3 ways to visit the Palace there: 1) by commercial tours from Paris, 2) independently by SCNF from the Gare de Lyon. They sell a combination ticket which includes round-trip and connecting bus through town to the chateau plus admission to chateau and grounds. 3) By car as part of a sightseeing tour outside of Paris. There are several places to stay in or near Fontainebleau. On one trip we chose a small hotel in the tiny town of Recloses, in the forest. We stayed 2 nights , giving opportunities to see the Forest and nearby sights like Vaux-le-Vicomte and towns like Melun and Nemours. When you visit the Palace be sure to get a free audioguide (1 1/2 hours duration).
