The Chateau de Chantilly belonged to Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale, the son of the last king of France. It is one of the largest art museums in France, with its Delacroix’, Boticelli’s pieces of art.
The Chateau de Chantilly is separated in two parts, the apartments and the Musée Condé. The Condé Museum is the second biggest museum just behind the Louvre Museum, thanks to its wonderful 800 pieces of art.
You will discover the amazing Cabinet des Livres and the gorgeous Galerie des Cerfs.
Then, you will go to the magnificent town of Senlis, a small town but really charming.
