Bonjour, Bienvenue en France! (I Googled this for you)
You think of France, and your mind flies straight to Paris, gliding above the Eiffel Tower. And even though it is the main reason people visit République Française, let me tell you, there are facets of France you might end up loving even more. So, here is an appreciation blog for the Beautiful Country and reasons why France should be your next travel destination, besides The Eiffel Tower!
Top Reasons to Travel to France
Croissants, Cheese and Wine
Oh, the culinary delights of France! French cuisine is famous all around the world, and France is home to some of the finest restaurants, bakeries, and cafes. From croissants and cheese to fine dining and wine, you’ll have no shortage of delicious delicacies.
As Artsy as it gets
France looks and feels like an artist’s favourite work. Home to some of the most famous artists and art museums in the world, France inspires art by being it. Works of Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh all add to the beauty of it.
Just as Interesting Past
The days of the past are just as fascinating as the days of now when it comes to France. From the Roman Empire to the French Revolution, its history will leave you wondering. And while you are in France, explore medieval castles, Roman ruins, and historic towns to know more about where it all came from.
It is home to Paris
And that is itself reason enough to visit France! From the Eiffel Tower to the Seine River, Paris is home to beautiful landmarks and scenery you’ll not find elsewhere.

Beaches and Sunsets
Trips are even fulfilling when a part of it is lying ideally on a beach watching a pretty sunset. And France has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, from the Cote d’Azur to the Atlantic coast. So you can unwind all you want. Whether you want to sunbathe, swim, or surf, there is a beach.
Did We Mention Wine?
Honorary mention for the wine. France is home to some of the world’s most famous wine regions, such as Bordeaux and Champagne. You can visit vineyards, taste wines, and learn about winemaking. And as the French saying goes, Quand le vin est tiré, il faut le boire, meaning when the wine is poured, it must be drunk.
The Good Ol Alps
The Mountain above all of the world’s petty problems (As they seem when you are up there). France is home to the Alps, which offer breathtaking views and world-class skiing and snowboarding. You can also hike, climb, or bike in the mountains.
It’s a Fashionista’s World
Every week is Fashion Week in France. Famous for its fashion industry, with Paris being the home of haute couture, it is on top of every travel enthusiast’s wishlist. You can shop for designer clothes, visit fashion museums, and attend fashion shows.
‘Tis ALWAYS the season
It is always merry in France. Famous for its festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival, the Tour de France, and the Festival of Lights in Lyon, anytime you are in France, you will catch a glimpse of its festive spirit. There is always something happening in France.
Culturally speaking, France is a treat for the curious; there is so much culture to unravel. France. From music to literature to architecture, one cannot get enough of it.
