France at the Chateau de Fontainebleau.

It’s time for a virtual vacation in France at the Chateau de Fontainebleau.

Chateau de Fontainebleau started being used in the 12th century. It has housed many kings and Queens, some of these were King Louis VII, Marie Antoinette and Emperor Napoleon.  Fontainebleau is one of the only royal chateaus that has been in continuous use for seven centuries. Its contents were sold during the French revolution.  Later Napoleon reopened it and used it as a residence.   The chateau has 1500 rooms and 130 acres of Parkland and Gardens.  

If you click on the picture above you can go on a virtual tour of the chateau by just clicking on arrows and watching the little light on the left side telling you which way to go. Level 0 is a beautiful chapel. And on level 1 move to the right first and go around the U shape it’s my favorite part very richly decorated. Left has some very pretty places also. Make sure you look up at the ceilings and zoom into things to see details, use your scroll to zoom in and out. Play around with your mouse because you can move all over with it, click further down the hall and you will speed past things. It takes a few minutes to get used to it and then its lots of fun.


  1. A very interesting way to tour. Make you wonder how long the programming took. - Margy

  3. Hi Margy, It's amazing isn't it. It must have taken months. I'm glad they're these tours, because I get to see places I may never get to go.
