Paris Is Always a Good Idea

Thus spoke Audrey Hepburn, and who are we to doubt her? A dream destination for many, the City of Light is among the prettiest and most romantic cities in the world. Thanks to Haussmann’s facelift of the French capital in the 19th century, the city’s architecture is so distinct that you would instantly recognize a photo of Paris, even if none of its iconic landmarks were in it. 

Speaking of iconic, the French capital’s ultimate symbol is the Eiffel Tower, the world’s most popular attraction. Featuring world-class art like the Mona Lisa and her enigmatic smile, Paris is a city intertwined with art and history; an almost too-perfect-to-be-real metropolis in the heart of Europe. Yet, Paris is real. Very much so. A living and breathing city to experience with all your senses while walking along the Seine or taking in the joie de vivre at the city’s quaint cafés and picture-perfect bakeries.

The Glorious French Countryside & Coastline

Yet France’s charms don’t end in Paris. France boasts spectacular countryside, dotted with fairytale-like towns, villages, and castles with many exciting stories to tell. Lost-in-time Amboise and lively Tours are the perfect bases from where to explore the stunning Loire Valley and its castles, a fairyland of sorts eternally embraced by the Loire River as it winds its way through vineyards, orchards, and lush fields. In the south, Provence and its lavender fields never ceased to inspire artists and writers to express their love for this sun-drenched French region through their work. Aix-en-Provence and Avignon are the most quintessentially Provencal towns, while Marseille, the oldest city in France, is a melting pot of cultures like no other.

No trip to France is complete without a glimpse of the dazzling French Riviera with its breathtaking views of the glistening Mediterranean Sea. Using Nice as a base, the many treasures to discover along the famous Côte d'Azur are within easy reach. After the sweetness of the Mediterranean, the dramatic Atlantic coast to the north and west of France awaits. From the ramparts of Saint-Malo and its high tides, embark on a trip to the mesmerizing Mont-Saint-Michel, this mirage of a town that looks as though it emerges from the sea. Further north, historic Bayeux and the landing beaches of Normandy narrate tales of bravery, some of which determined the outcome of the Second World War.

Four Cities, Four Faces of France

France is home to some of the best wine-making regions in the world. Bordeaux is probably the most renowned among them. Taking a stroll through century-old vineyards while tasting superb local wines is among the optimal ways to appreciate the essence of France, that very same essence that adds a special sparkle to the country’s wine. From the timeless pleasure that comes from sipping on a glass of French wine, take a trip to the country’s past. Crossing the country to Carcassonne is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for history lovers. With its remarkably well-preserved medieval citadel, Carcassonne is the ideal destination to picture what life must have looked like back in the Middle Ages.

On the other hand, Lyon, the third-largest city in France, reflects the country’s present. Authentic Lyon is a window into the local lifestyle, the perfect place to experience France the way the French do. Last but not least, Strasbourg represents the present and the future not only of France but of the entire European continent. With many EU institutions based in Strasbourg, the ravishing capital of the Alsace region is a significant business, cultural, and commercial hub.

The French Cuisine

French cuisine is as diverse as France itself. With influences from the food cultures of the many countries that surround it, such as Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, France boasts a long and rich culinary history and countless award-winning restaurants. From the mundane warmth of a perfectly baked baguette paired with a chunk of delicious local cheese to fine Michelin-starred dining, France has it all. More than just sustenance, food in France is also a way for people to come together, and this is why UNESCO added French food to its list of the world’s intangible cultural heritage.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to France

What's the best way to get to France?
From the US there are direct flights from many US cities to Paris, making Paris a logical starting point for any trip to France. If you're already in Europe, France has excellent road and rail links with neighboring countries.
When is the best time to visit France?
The answer to this really depends on what you plan to do. If your interests tend to cultural and gastronomic then France is wonderful any time of the year. If you want to visit the coast and enjoy beach days, then summer, roughly June to mid September, is best. In August, Paris is deserted by locals as they leave for their summer holidays to avoid the heat in the city.
How many days do I need to see France?
France might look relatively small on a map (it's smaller than the state of Texas) but with several different climate zones, varying local cuisines, mountains, wine regions and a significant amount of coastline, there's an awful lot to see in France. Rather than trying to fit everything in and rushing around but ultimately seeing nothing, we suggest focusing on a few destinations to suit your interests. Our experienced travel advisors will be able to help you narrow down your choice of destinations and craft the optimal itinerary for the amount of time you have. France is a joy to revisit, because there's always something new. You can mix in some favorite destinations with some new, each time you return.
What's a good itinerary for a first time visitor to France?
You could spend your whole trip in Paris, and take day trips by high speed train to various places, but we feel it's important to experience a bit more of life outside Paris than day-tripping allows. If you have 10 days then a trip that starts in Paris, takes you to Avignon in Provence, then Nice on the Cote d'Azur gives a fabulous opportunity to see three very different sides of the country - the capital, the countryside, and the coast.
