Summing up France in just a few words is nearly impossible. It can whisk you from rich mountains to lush forests, stunning coastlines to elite ski resorts; for city-lovers, there are world-famous museums and architectural masterpieces (just to whet your appetite). And once the sightseeing is done, sampling French cuisine is an absolute must. Some of the best restaurants in the world will take your taste buds on a tantalizing culinary journey through local food.
France is Western Europe’s largest country, with a climate ranging from the cool of the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean subtropics. The summer is relatively hot, with temperatures around 25-30°C, making late spring or early fall the ideal time to visit. Ski season in the French Alps lasts from November to April or May, with temperatures rarely dropping below -15°C.
France is where your dreams come true…from the snow of its crisp mountain ski resorts to the warmth of its haute cuisine and hearty meals, from its incredible museums to its picturesque villages. Paris alone will give you only a small taste of France, but it will make you want to return time and time again.
