Few cities rival Paris with its cosy cafés, waterways – most notably the Seine – and of course the ever-present view of the Eiffel Tower, which is easily the world’s most iconic structure. Bordeaux, meanwhile, pairs all-night coffee shops with UNESCO-listed and Neoclassical architecture. Over in Nice, you get perfect beaches and a look at the country’s glamorous past. Nice is a fine example of what’s so remarkable about cities in the South of France, as it offers rich culture spun together with a beautiful coastline. The often-dubbed French Riviera is a place to not only recline by the sea but to explore classic centres that have been the subject of books and films for decades.
Over in the French Alps, you’ll find winter sports galore not to mention some of the best runs in Europe at Chamonix! Found at the foot of Mont Blanc, the country’s highest peak, the scenery is spectacular too.
Credited for both the Michelin Guide and the macaroon, France is proud of its culinary achievements. It’s here you’ll find many of the world’s best wine-producing regions, too – from Bordeaux to Champagne.
the peak summer months of July and August are best due to the more desirable weather.
