The variety of its landscapes, the charm of its people, and the richness of its culture creates a memory to last a lifetime.

France is one of the world’s top tourist destinations and encompasses classy, romantic, historic and captivating scenery.

Even though France is a fairly small country, it would take centuries to fully explore all its aspects. France has many layers of history represented by monuments of all sorts – mountains, beaches, the small villages frozen in a certain era and the big modern cities is what truly gives visitors a taste of French culture.

Stroll along the docks of the romantic capital, indulge in world-renowned pâtisseries, admire majestic cathedrals, run through the lavender fields of Provence, taste the wine and champagne of ancestral vineyards, expand your history and art knowledge at centuries-old museums, purchase fresh produce at the local farmer’s market, dress to impress in St Tropez or tackle the ski slopes in Courchevel.

If you have never been to France, we suggest visiting Paris. Paris is the global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its picturesque 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, the city is known for its cafe culture, and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.  If time allows, you may want to pair it with a visit to Provence, this way giving you a taste of the big city and the slow country life.
