French culture has been shaped by centuries of history, and is rooted in love: love for family and friends, good food and wine, and art, literature, fashion and cinema. A good work/life balance is celebrated, which gives French people both more time to see their family and friends, as well as to sharpen their intellectual curiosity. Museums and galleries are rarely empty, with the Louvre in particular being the most-visited art museum in the world.

French culture is highly influential. After English, French is the most studied language across the globe, and several famous artists were either born or lived here, like Van Gogh and Renoir. Food is also central to life in France – so much so, that French cuisine was recognised as a core part of the world’s cultural heritage in 2010.


Expect to see a lot of remarkable landmarks on your trip to France. Of the most renowned are sights that need no introduction: the Palace of Versailles, Mont Saint-Michel, Carcassonne and the Eiffel Tower, to name a few. There are also a ton of castles, including over 3,000 in just the Loire Valley.


As of 2021, there are more than 630 Michelin-starred restaurants in France. That’s more than any other country in the world, and many of them are packed into Paris. Several world-famous chefs call the capital their home, offering phenomenal fare that redefines the foundations of fine dining. Head here with an empty stomach – you’ll want to try as much as possible.



Paris is the most popular city in France, and for good reason. The “City of Light” features some of the most famous landmarks in the world, including the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. It’s also a major cultural center, filled to the brim with world-renowned museums, theaters, galleries and more. Couples heading to Paris shouldn’t miss a trip to the Pont des Arts – a “love lock” bridge to which you can add your names and seal your love forever.


Based on the French Riviera, Nice is known for its beautiful scenery and stunning weather, making it a popular spot for vacationers year-round. It has a compelling history dating back to the Roman Empire, and is fittingly home to many historic landmarks and museums, like the Castle of Nice and the St Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral. Many are more than happy to fill their days simply strolling along its iconic promenade, however, which covers roughly 7km.


Located in Provence, Avignon’s history is intertwined with that of Christianity, and traceable through its many awe-inspiring attractions. The Palais des Papes – or “Palace of the Popes” – is one of them: a 14th-century palace that was once home to nine popes. You’ll also be amazed by Avignon’s cathedral, which sits atop a hill overlooking the city.


Cities don’t get prettier – or more historic – than Strasbourg. This Alsace hotspot blends beautiful architecture withcultural attractions and fine eateries, ranging from a Gothic cathedral to the many half-timbered houses nestled within La Petite-France, one of the city’s most historic quarters. Make sure to dine at a Winstub while you’re here, a typically Alsatian restaurant with an authentic vibe.


The Côte d’Azur, otherwise known as the French Riviera, is France’s coastal soul. With its stunning Mediterranean beaches and gorgeous climate, tourists venture here year after year… and in particular, it’s been beloved by the rich and famous since the 20th century. Between sights like Saint-Tropez and Cannes, this spot has attracted jet-setters the world-over, and entertained them with ease with its mix of lively nightlife, great food and wine, and stunning scenery peppered with sensational seascapes.
