  • The grandest Neoclassical palace in France, Compiègne was started by Louis XV and completed by Louis XVI just one year before the French Revolution. It served mainly as a residence of Napoleon I and Napoleon III. It is in many ways as outstanding as Versailles but much less crowded.
  • A monument to a very rich history taken over by Napoleon following the kings to be part of their history. Allow more than half a day but you can eat in the castle grounds. Indeed we visit the castle, the park and the two museums. The Napoleon Museum can be closed in the summer if it is too hot.
