    Not far from Fontainebleau is the small artist town of Barbizon. It was here where during the period from 1830-1870 that such artists as Francois Millet, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and other lived and worked. There are numerous artists studios and shops. Several homes of famous artists are open as museums. Some tours to Fontainebleau include a stop here.

    Museum of Napoleon era

    For those passionate about Napoleon history (especially military) a visit to the Musee Napoleonien would be of great interest. It is relatively small but well selected collection of uniforms, weapons and documents of Napoleon times. The museum is located on rue Saint-Honore, about 10 min walk from the chateau. It definitely worths a visit!

    We liked this beautiful fountain because we called it "Dogs who are doing their small needs" - as "Maneken pees" in Brussels.
