The Seine-et-Marne is full of small medieval towns whose conservation is sometimes quite unheard of. Melun, a city that has remained quite medieval, which has retained a certain rusticity that adds an undeniable cachet to it with Île Saint-Étienne surrounded by the waves of the Seine, is quite nicely flowered and covered with a very pleasant vegetation for a city centre. In Meaux, the episcopal palace and its Saint-Étienne cathedral are the symbols of this. The Old Chapter is also a building to see and visit, as it is so old (13th century), typical of the region and in a breathtaking state of conservation. Fontainebleau must be part of your stops during your stay in this destination. If only for his castle. A favourite residence of Francis I, it is a medieval, Renaissance and classical wonder, thanks to its expansion and restoration.
