  • Travel in France

    France shares its borders with Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. It lies in the Atlantic as well as the Mediterranean regions of Europe and hence has a drastically diverse climate. This shows its influence on the land as well; from sunny beaches in the French Riviera to the snow capped Alps in the north. The country has a rich history and cultural heritage, drawing in an estimated 70 million tourists a year and it ranks as the number one tourist destination. Nationals of the EU, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel do not need visas to visit France as tourists for up to three months. The best time to visit France is during spring as you can enjoy its beautiful beaches and Mediterranean climate through longer days than in winter. Some of the places of interest in France are;

    Paris, with its romantic landscapes and world famous monuments like the Quais, the Quartier Latin, Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Boulevards and the Arc de Triomphe offers the new-comer a truly magical experience with the food, language, art and culture only enhancing the pleasure of the senses. Along the French Riviera, Cannes draws more than its fair share of tourists and visitors with its sunny beaches and Mediterranean climate, apart from this are it numerous boutiques, hotels and restaurants. Toulouse in the south of France, located between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coast is popular for its educational institutions and fine food. The city also has an 18th century Old quarter with fabulous old mansions and churches. You may live in France for a lifetime and still not discover everything it has to offer but its an experience which you will cherish for a lifetime.
