    Where to Go on a Tour of France

    Paris 

    Live and breathe French culture and history by visiting the legendary capital, Paris. You’ll immediately notice the iconic Eiffel Tower - completed in 1889, this is the jewel in Paris’ skyline, and one of the world’s most  recognizable landmarks. In the evening, we recommend admiring the tower from the Champ de Mars, when 20,000 light bulbs illuminate the landmark with a dazzling light show. If you’re interested in art, check out some of Paris’ excellent galleries, such as the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre

    If you’re interested in history, then head to the old royal town of Versailles that sits just outside Paris and draws visitors year-round with its opulent architecture and exquisite gardens. Enter the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV, who began construction in 1631. Tour the residence and gardens including the famous Hall of Mirrors and Marie Antoinette’s retreat, Petit Trianon. Explore the 2,014 acres by foot, bicycle, or golf cart encountering plenty of shops, cafes, and restaurants along the way.

    Mont Saint-Michel

    Located just off the northern coast of France, the island community of Mont Saint-Michel looks like it belongs in a fairytale. This unique UNESCO World Heritage site towers spectacularly out of the surrounding ocean. Explore the tiny village and be ready to climb some stairs as you take in the Romanesque and Gothic architecture. The view from the abbey is well worth the climb. It is approximately four hours drive from Paris. 

    Bordeaux

    If you’re passionate about wine, then look no further: Bordeaux has been producing wine for 10 centuries. The “Sleeping Beauty” of France will enchant you with its 18th-century facades and cosmopolitan attitude. Whether it’s a hip new restaurant or the Jardin Public, inspired by the gardens of Versailles, in Bordeaux, it’s all about the atmosphere. Take some time to stroll its beautiful streets, and be sure to slurp fresh oysters and local varieties.

    The French Riviera

    Visit this beautiful stretch of Mediterranian coastline known as the French Riviera or Côte d'Azur, stretching from Cassis to the France-Italy border to get your fill of beach luxury. Lounge in Saint-Tropez, admire Picasso’s works in Antibes, or try your luck in the Monte Carlo Casino. Yacht through azure waters while sipping cocktails.  Inland, you’ll find cozy villages, excellent art galleries, and rolling vineyards. The French Riviera is where glamour meets relaxation. Less

Popular French dishes are perfect for carnivores, and include steak tartare (raw minced beef with egg), coq au vin (chicken cooked in wine), beef bourguignon (a rich stew with mushrooms and red wine), French onion soup, and confit du canard (a duck dish).

    What are the Best Events in France?

    1. Red carpeted stairs at Cannes Film Festival in France.

      From live tennis to film festivals

      Film buffs should consider visiting the French Riviera during the Cannes Film Festival, which takes place every May. Those interested in live sports will be drawn to Roland Garros - the French Open tennis tournament that also takes place in May, and is one of the world’s four major grand slam tournaments. Bastille Day takes place on the 14th July, remembering the events of the pivotal French Revolution that turned France into a republic. It is a very important national holiday, and the festivities around the country are worth visiting for in their own right. 

    Useful Information for Planning Your Trip

    Spring and autumn are the best times to visit France, when the weather is mild and the country is bustling with life. In general, summers are mild at 68 to 86° and winters cold at 32 to 46°—with hotter summer temps on the French Riviera and colder winters in the alpine regions. Places are more crowded from mid-July to the end of August, as this is when the French take their vacation and some spots close. Winter is a great time for snow sport enthusiasts or museum lovers.

    The price of a French vacation depends on what time of year you visit, and on your travel tastes and preferences. Consult your own Tourlane Travel Expert for a free consultation.
