France welcomes more tourists than most countries in the world, and this should not come as a surprise. People dream of visiting the Eiffel Tower, never-ending baguettes, delicious croissants, colourful macarons, and many more things. You will find stunning beaches, art museums, snow-capped Alps including Europes’s tallest peak. If France isn't on your bucket list, it should be.


 

10 Reasons Why You Should Visit France

1. History & Culture

France has a very rich history and culture that cannot be missed, and French people take pride in their heritage. The history and culture of France is clear in its art, architecture, and literature, and you can witness all of that when visiting a lot of places such as Château de Versailles, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, and many more. France has around 39 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you do not want to miss them.



2. French Cuisine


I love trying new dishes whenever I am traveling somewhere, I think this is one of the best way to get to know the country, and if you visit France, then you will definitely like the food there. It is also worth mentioning that French cuisine is an integral part of the culinary world, and it has a reputation of being unique and rich in taste.



3. Distinctive Geography


France offers a lot of opportunities for tourists when it comes to activities because of its variety in geography. You can visit stunning beaches in Cannes, Côte d’Azur, or Nice, or you can visit the snowy Mont Blanc and enjoy snowy slopes and skiing. France provides you with the opportunity to try so many different activities depending on where you are in the country.


4. Land Of Museums & Art


There is no denying that France has the land of museums and art, and there is a lot that you can immerse yourself into. You can visit Musée Du Louvre that has notable paintings and art pieces such as the Mona Lisa, and you can see many other things.



5. Charming Castles


France has a lot of charming castles like most countries in Europe, and you do not want to miss them. If you want to explore all the castles in France, then you will need a month to do so, and the fun part is that you can get to admire and enjoy them all.



6. Calm Countryside


France has a calm and relaxing countryside that you can visit to take break from the city and its noise and pollution. Around 80% of France is villages, so if you are looking for some piece of mind, then you need to visit France’s countryside.



7. Paris


There is no denying that Paris is a charming city, I visited it twice. So, yes you need to visit Paris at least once in your life, but I’m not going to lie, it is overhyped, which is why you will need to visit it once and probably won't feel like going back there. Always remember that France is not just Paris and there are other places you can visit.



8. Disneyland Paris

This is a must I have to say, my experience in Disneyland has been great and I loved it so much. There are many things you can do, but you need to spend at least a full day there, and make sure to arrive early in the morning and stay until the end of the day to get the full experience.



9. Great Day Trips

If you are visiting Paris for example, and you have a few extra days, then you will enjoy the day trips you can do from there. Paris is surrounded by a lot of natural beauty and historical landmarks that you can visit, because remember; if you are visiting only Paris, there is more to France so make sure to explore more.



10. Paradise Of Fashion


If you are into fashion, then France is the paradise of fashion admirers. France is home to famous brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and many more. So if you love fashion and shopping, then you will love it in France especially in Paris.

France’s biggest airports are Paris Charles de Gaulle, Paris Orly, Nice, and Lyon Saint Exupéry. So you will not struggle to find flights to France. You can use WayAway to find cheap flights. You can also reach France by train or buses from most cities in Europe, and I like to use Omio whenever I am travelling in Europe to find either trains or buses.



 

How To Move Around France


The airports in France are connected to a train station, so you will be able to move from the airports easily. When moving around each city you can get the metro or the tram, you can buy tickets from any metro station or from a tram stop, you will find ticket machines at each stop. Also be aware that you need to validate your ticket once you get on your mode of transport of choice, this is important to not forget.



You can book trains and buses through Omio to move from one city to the other, which as I mentioned before is my favourite app to use whenever I am travelling in Europe, and I have used it multiple times when I was in France.



 

Best Time To Visit France


France’s weather varies depending on the region, when you look at the south of France, sunshine is around 300 days of the year, but then you go to other regions, you will find your normal 4 seasons. So, the best time to visit France in general would be in Spring & Autumn, because you would be avoiding both the extreme weather as well as the crowd, and it will be low season, so it will be cheaper then.



 

Accommodations In France


You will be able to find accommodations in France that would suit your budget whether you are on a budget or you’re looking for something luxurious.


You can book your accommodation through Booking.com, which is the one I use the most, or if you wan to stay in a hostel you can book through HostelWorld. You can also use Agoda, Trivago, or Vrbo to book your accommodations. I know most people have a favourite website or app to use, so just choose what you prefer best.
