Fontainebleau is a lovely historical town south of Paris. It is known for its historical Château de Fontainebleau of the kings of France, which attracts crowds of tourists. It has been the main summer residence for French Monarchs for hundreds of years. The château you see today dates from the 16th century, although additions were made by various royal incumbents through the next 300 years. Fontainbleau had the noblest garden in France. It was made for a king, Francois I, who wished to rival the great courts of Italy.
