Fontainebleau, part 1

Château de Fontainebleau. About an hour outside Paris, and a beautiful combination of castle, garden, and forest. Both home and country getaway for numerous French kings and leaders over the last eight centuries, including Napoléon during the height of his power. Interesting to see architecture and décor influenced by the Italian style rather than French, and an amazing property for taking a long weekend stroll. A bunch more pictures in the following posts.
