Interiors of Fontainebleau Palace, Paris
If you can enjoy the opulence and grandeur of European royalty without any kind of bias then you will definitely enjoy the sights you get to see in the palace of Fountainebleau. The rooms are furnished with period furniture and tapestries. The bedrooms were like “OMG!” Heavenly ambience! Imagine lying on them! The furnishings are classy and lavish.
Each room is decorated differently; I came out wide eyed from each room. Just when I thought the decoration of one room to be ultimate, the next room would be even more stunning. So this was the opulence the peasants had funded for the royals! I remember seeing one room, a huge dining room, where the royals had food and the same room had a section where poor peasants were allowed to stand and watch them take food.
Ceilings, chandeliers in the ceilings, walls, their curtains and other accessories and the carpets on floor; top to bottom, I wanted to capture them all. I did to my very best and I will share the shots here in future posts.

Not all rooms are open to public. The audio guide is excellent, helps you notice details, photography (without flash) is allowed thankfully. Mid-April, the lines weren’t long. Weather was perfectly fine, that doesn’t matter because you will spend more time seeing the interiors. Keep two hours for a satisfactory tour through these rooms.
