Built by Louis XV and Louis XVI, and remodeled by both Napoleon I and Napoleon III, the Palais de Compiègne was a center for court life and the exercise of power. The originality and beauty of this, the biggest neoclassical palace in France, and the quality of its interior décor and furnishings make for a unique ensemble. Alongside Versailles and Fontainebleau, this historic place is one of the three largest royal and imperial residences in France.

Malmaison was selected and decorated by Joséphine as her home but Napoleon often stayed with her, particularly between 1800 and 1802, when the château served as the government headquarters, alongside the Tuileries palace. Following the imperial couple’s divorce, the château was given to Joséphine. Now a museum, it houses an impressive collection of artworks and objets d’art from the Napoleonic Era.
