We loved Versailles, but it was an arduous action to get through the lines and dodge the hordes of tourists. Fontainebleau is like a mini Versailles with almost no crowds. We visited in April and just walked in, got our tickets, and started our viewing of the magnificent Chateau. We loved the ability to take pictures close up without dodging onlookers. We parked on the street just about a block from the main entrance (be sure to pay at the blue parking kiosk and put your parking ticket on your dashboard). It was raining the day we visited so we did not linger outdoors, but thoroughly enjoyed the Chateau with much less exhaustion than our Versailles adventure.
