Attracting more than 45 million tourist annually, Paris is one of the world most renowned and popular travel destinations. Known as the City of Lights, City of Love, and Capital of Fashion, Paris is the capital of France. With romantic ambiance, commanding business industries, entertainment, gastronomy, fashion, art, and culture, there’s plenty to do around this city. In addition to iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris is also home to some of the world’s finest museums that include the Louvre Museum and Musee d’Orsay.
2. French Riviera
Located on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the French Riviera (known as Cote d’ Azur) to the locals, is the playground for the rich, famous, and hordes of international tourists. The Riviera is most famous for the glamour of St. Tropez, Monaco, and the Cannes Film Festival, there are many other less well known destinations such as the perched villages of Ezez, Saint-Paul de Vence, and the perfumeries of Grasse to name a few. The French Riviera being one of the more northerly places along the cost of the Mediterranean, the city gets wonderfully mild to warm climate all year round.
3. Mont Saint-Michel
Rising up from the midst of vast mud flats and some of Europe’s most powerful tidal waves is the rocky island of Mont Saint-Michel. It’s located off France’s northwestern coast in Normandy. It’s one of the most popular places to visit in France for its construction of medieval structures built as if stacked upon one another. A star attraction is the Abbey of Mount Saint-Michel. The awe-inspiring abbey was built by devoted monks in 708 AD after the Bishop of Avranches was said to be visited by Archangel Michael.
These are just some of my preferred destinations. There’s definitely a lot more to see in France than this. I’ll be adding more of my recommendations as this blog grows. If you’d like me to give you some insights about a place, please message me here.
