Let Us Plan Your Travel to France

One of the world’s most visited countries, France is for culture vultures, foodies, wine enthusiasts, history buffs, shopaholics, beach lovers, and more. With its diverse topography, from vineyard covered hills to soaring mountains and white sandy beaches, there’s truly something for everyone.

Paris offers enough for a lifetime alone – visitors can enjoy world-class museums, iconic monuments, fashion boutiques, fine dining and sophisticated nightlife, but there are many other magnificent cities, charming small towns and hilltop villages, along with a countryside dotted with chateaus and castles.

French fare is arguably the best in the world, whether in small-town bistros or Michelin-starred restaurants – it’s one of the major attractions here, along with the wine. French wines are some of the finest you can enjoy anywhere, and there are countless magnificent wine estates for touring and tasting. Just a few of the top spots you won’t want to miss include the City of Lights, for the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, nearby Versailles Palace, and the romantic atmosphere.

Along the French Riviera you’ll find white sandy beaches and a cosmopolitan air, along with Cannes, which draws many A-list celebrities to its film festival every year. Explore Lyon, the world’s culinary capital, which also boasts a Roman amphitheatre and other 2,000-year-old remnants, and Provence, with its landscapes stretching from the Southern Alps near Italy to the Mediterranean coast, with its olive groves, pine forests, and lavender fields in between. Just outside Avignon is the Roman-built Pont du Gard, with the river below ideal for swimming.
