Saturday, I took a bus tour to Vaux-le-Vicomte and Fontainebleau with some friends from home who happened to be in Paris. Court ballets were performed at both châteaux, so it was both a fun and informative day. Vaux-le-Vicomte was built by Nicolas Fouquet, the surintendant of Finances, during the 17th century.
