France

Take it from your Travel Insider: the unique French culture offers a way of living – and eating – like nowhere else.

Gourmet foods, fine wines, historical monuments, and breathtaking art and architecture – there’s more to France than sheer romance.
Visit Paris and be amazed by the magic lights, savory wine, gourmet cheese, and rich chocolate – even go rollerblading on the streets of the Bastille quarter.
Outside Paris, France offers a whole world of possibilities, from a private wine-tasting excursion in Bordeaux to a tour of the Palace and Gardens of Versailles, the official residence of kings during the 17th and 18th centuries.
