Stop At: Chateau de Fontainebleau, Pl. du General-de-Gaulle, 77300, Fontainebleau France

Your tour starts with pickup in Paris by your private driver and guide for the 1-hour drive south of the city to the town of Fontainebleau, which sits next to the Forest of Fontainebleau. The residence of French kings for eight centuries, Château de Fontainebleau has been home to several royal families, such as Capétiens, Valois, Bourbon, Bonaparte, and Orléans, all members of French ruling dynasties. Throughout the years, kings, queens, emperors, and empresses made their own improvements and additions to the château, which gives it its diverse yet cohesive look, built around the original keep. With your private guide, explore the palace, gardens, and pond. If you're interested in landscaping, this is a chance to compare the French gardens designed by Le Nôtre under Louis 14th with the English gardens on the other side of the palace.

Pass By: Barbizon School Museum (Musee de l'Ecole de Barbizon), 92 Grande rue, 77630 Barbizon France

Then head to the village of Barbizon. The Barbizon school of painters got its name from this village, where artists such as Théodore Rousseau and Jean-François Millet painted their landscapes and life scenes in the mid-1800s. Lunch break in Barbizon. Possible to visit the original place where the artists stayed the night in the 1800's.

Marie and Phillipe were amazing. Fountainbleu not nearly as impressive as Versailles but interesting. Lunch in Barbizon was great.
