Vaux le Vicomte and Chateau de Fontainebleau Day Trip from Paris

The tour was arranged quite well, with enough time to go through each house with the audio tours. Found the history of Vaux le Vicomte especially interesting. People wanting to understand the story behind Versailles should definitely visit Vaux le Vicomte as well. ...Heather K., Canada – See more reviews
