Picture 17th-century architecture, sprawling green formal gardens, and stunning French countryside all in one day. Join a full-day excursion from Paris to the magnificent châteaux of Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau, and see how the kings of France used to live.

Leaving central Paris in the morning, you'll soon be on your way to the very château that inspired King Louis XIV to build Versailles. Enter the 17th-century Vaux le Vicomte!

Imagine the sleeping French nobles and the bustling cooks in action as your audio guide takes you around Nicolas Fouquet's state rooms and the château's giant kitchens and cellars.

Outside, explore acres and acres of sculpted bushes, glistening lakes, and bright flower beds in bloom – it's French romance at its finest. Take a picnic and eat on the grass, or opt for the Vaux le Vicomte restaurant.

After lunch, it's time to explore the only royal and imperial château that's been inhabited for seven centuries, Fontainebleau.

Explore the royal touches from medieval to renaissance and classical styles, and see the rich traditional furnishings. Learn what creature comforts the royals liked to keep in their private apartments, and see star items like Napoleon I's throne and the famous horseshoe-shaped staircase.

After the tour, get some fresh French air in the huge grounds surrounding the château. All this fun and history is just one hour from Paris.

The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a wonderful place to lose yourself in this country’s remarkable history. It’s a miniseries in the making. It has an intriguing story with a dark and tragic end. The Château is remarkable and lovingly restored. The vast gardens a joy to investigate. I had a wonderful morning. <br>I would have liked another hour at the Château de Fountainebleu. I became obsessed with the interior and would have liked to spent more time in the gardens. Nevertheless, I had a very memorable day. The staff in all locations were friendly and very tolerant of my lack of French. A great day!
