France is a country that has it all: vibrant cities, charming villages, breathtaking landscapes, a rich history and delicious cuisine. These are just some of the reasons to visit. And we're not just talking about Paris, its fascinating capital, which you should visit at least once in your lifetime. There are many places scattered throughout its geography that are worth a visit.
It is the most visited country in the world, with international travellers attracted by the country's cultural offerings and its iconic Eiffel Tower. It is also famous for its natural borders: the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean, the Rhine River, the Alps and the Pyrenees.
The best thing is that any time of year is a good time to travel to France: it depends on the region you want to visit and the type of tourism you want to do. In the Côte d'Azur area, the ideal time to travel is during the summer season, from June to September, to enjoy the beaches and the good weather. In the French Alps, you can travel in winter to enjoy skiing and other snow sports, or in summer to enjoy the fantastic hiking in the area. If you're travelling in spring or autumn, a visit to Normandy, Alsace (the Germanic region of France), the Loire Valley area or the capital Paris itself is a good option.
France also has a good gastronomy, especially through its cheeses, wines, tomatoes, fine herbs, vegetables and more. Ratatouille, for example, is one of the most typical dishes of French cuisine, and is made with vegetables. And cassoulet, the most delicious stew.
