Once in the Cour du Cheval Blanc, by the famous horseshoe-shaped staircase , we’ll begin our journey into the heart of one of France’s most beautiful châteaux, following in the footsteps of the French kings, queens, emperors and empresses who have left their mark on the palace’s history and French’s history.
Together, we’ll discover the magnificent Galerie François I, where we’ll marvel at the works of the Italian Renaissance by Primaticcio and Il Rosso, the founders of the École de Fontainebleau.

We will then continue our tour with a visit to the appartments of Napoleon I, before finishing on a high note with a visit to the Church of Saint Saturnin.
