Paris - Versailles or Fontainebleau

Jump to last reply

I have viewed comments pertaining to the topic of visiting Versailles or Fontainebleau, but they don't appear to be too recent...... My wife and I are traveling to Paris in July, spending 9 full days there, (minus one, with a trip to Normandy).

We have been developing an itinerary for each day for some time now, honing in on our 'must sees', versus 'possibilities', finally coming to the decision of whether to go to Fontainbleau or Versailles. Making the assumption we will only do one, as well as the assumption that travel wont be an issue to either, (probably would elect the day trip to Fontainebleau & Vaux Le Vicomte, via Viator), or taking the train to Versailles; what is the public opinion ?

We would be more apt to spend more time internal to either place than the gardens - certainly viewing the gardens, but our interest would be more towards seeing the interior spaces/ detailing/ etc.

Public masses, we would love to avoid, especially assuming that during July, the masses might be even greater ! And we are willing to give up only so much grandeur (Fountainbleau), for the price of crowds. Is Versailles that much better to suggest going there, despite the crowds/ wait ? Has anyone taken the Viator day trip to Fontainebleau ?
