    Chateau de Fontainebleau: CHAMBRE DE REINE

    The beautiful Queen's Chamber

    Do make it a point to join a guided tour for an insight look at how the Kings & Queens of France used to live. Then you'll understand how/why the French Revolution started....

    So, our first stop inside this grand palance is the gorgeous Queen's Chamber. If this were my bedroom, I would never, ever want to get out of bed...! Not even for US$10,000. ;-)

    The castle's monumental staircase

    A visit to the castle of Fontainebleau is worth the stop or, when one is staying at the local campground, the detour. The many visitors lining up to visit every day might be a set back, but the gardens provide an equally grand experience for the guests who dislike standing in line for an extended period of time. Starting from the castle a horse drawn carriage makes tours through the surrounding park.
