What To See And Do While In France

Paris as seen from the Eiffel tower

If you’re planning a trip around France, there are a lot of things that will tickle your taste buds and manipulate your mind. The country is known for its incredible amount of history, art, and architecture, as well as its Michelin star restaurants and of course – the wine. But if you don’t know where the best-hidden gems are, here’s a list of what you need to look out for while you’re away.

Paris

Probably one of the most famous capitals in the world, Paris is an iconic place to visit if you know you’re going to be in France. It’s known for being the city of love, romance and of course, fashion. You can go and stand right in front of the oh so famous Eiffel Tower, or if you’re brave enough, take a ride all the way to the top so you can capture that perfect selfie. Then cycle along the Seine – or better yet, cruise down it on a bateau to get the whole experience. You can finish off your afternoon by having an espresso at the many different cafes on the strip and people watch until you get hungry.

 Lyon

This is a city in France, about five hours away from Paris, and is, in fact, the biggest in Rhone-Alpes. Lyon is famous for its historical landmarks that were created hundreds of years ago and still stand strong to this day. It was known on the lips of the workers as being one of the most productive cities for weaving silk, which was a rather big deal back in the day, and now the attention has been put onto their reputation for gastronomy in France.

French Riviera

This has always been a common place to go and pass through on your travels. It’s made up of the wealthy art collectors, empire builders, and fast car drivers. And with the stunning strip of seashore that welcomes you onto the big blue Mediterranean – it makes the perfect place to go to in the summer time. The town of Nice holds a lot of respect in the Riviera due to its edgy art museums, pebbled beaches, historical architecture and the well-known promenade.

Day trips include heading out to Cannes as we see so many film stars do for a quick getaway. Or a ride along the spine-tingling roads in Monaco, made most famous by the Formula One races.

French Alps

If you’re an adrenaline junky and one who likes to be involved in every kind of activity available, then you must visit The French Alps. It’s known as the huge outdoor playground in the ski season because there’s an insane amount of action that is offered up to you on a platter. Famous for their tricky slopes and trails that entice all the hardcore players from all over the world. Even if you’re not one who likes such an intense challenge, you can benefit from this place just from the visual stimulation you will experience, like the panoramic mountain views that you only ever see on a postcard.
