Lyon: direction Fontainebleau.
by French kings for its closeness to great hunting opportunities,
the Château de Fontainbleau makes a lovely side trip from
Paris. Located about 40 miles south of the city and accessible by
train in only 45 minutes, we recommend going in the morning
and walking around the grounds of the palace or take a hike in
the rock formations in the nearby forest.
