France brings visions of quaint Paris streets, fine wine, amazing history and unforgettable culture. When planning a trip to Europe; one must also a trip to France. France’s official name is The French Republic and is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several other overseas regions and territories.
Throughout its history, France has been a major contributor of art, science, and philosophy, and is a leading center for culture. Without a doubt, the divine cuisine and vast art collections add to the unforgettable ambiance of Paris, France’s capital and most populous city.
The Eiffel Tower is not the only attraction as the city contains world-class museums, fashion, shopping and atmosphere unique to France’s high culture, enough to please any traveler making their way through this beautiful part of western Europe on their trip to France.
Outside of the city, enjoy some sightseeing during the day on a tour through Versailles, founded by the will of King Louis XIV, and capital of the Kingdom of France for over a century, from 1682 to 1789. Only 50 miles from Paris, don’t miss a trip to Giverny, located in northern France, sitting on the right bank of the River Seine in the old province of Normandy. Claude Monet’s property at Giverny is a museum open to the public since 1980, and has become a popular tourist attraction, particularly in the summer when the flowers are in bloom.
