FRANCE, country of baguettes, Paris, the Alps, the Mona Lisa and croissants. France welcomes close to 80 million tourists annually traveling from all around the world which makes it the most popular destination for tourists worldwide. The most popular travel location within France is of course Paris, the city of love but also beautiful architecture like the famous Eiffel tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame cathedral.

While spending your whole holiday in Paris is certainly a possibility, there is more than enough in France to see apart from Paris. Travel to the beautiful Provence area, famous for its wines, the Cote d’Azur with all its brilliant white beaches. The Mediterranean Sea is perfectly blue (hence the name, Cote d’Azur) and a perfect place to relax after a year of hard work or school. Completely in the other direction, the north east of the country with a much more mild climate is also a place you could well spend some time of your visit. Think of the famous Normandy beaches where allied forces started their invasion during World War II. A real great village you should visit is Le Havre. The picturesque town is known for its small harbor with restaurants all around in a nice and friendly atmosphere.
Traveling to Paris you will not be the only tourist around.
