Famous for being a reference in art, history, culture, fashion and gastronomy, the country also offers several tourist itineraries that make you immerse yourself in one of the most surprising destinations in Europe, a full plate for all types of travelers.
We separate some points that you need to know.

The City tour is important to have a panoramic view of Paris and also to know a little about the history of the monuments in which you are visiting and then to be able to orient yourself in the city and then visit the places of your greatest interest.
Palace of Versailles
The Palace of Versailles and its gardens are considered a world heritage site. Located in the eponymous city and capital of Yvelines, the palace gained importance after 1682, when King Louis XIV of France resided in the building.
The castle visit includes the great apartments of the king and queen, the famous Gallery of Mirrors, the Royal Chapel, the gallery of Batalhas, the apartments of the Ladies and the gallery of History of the Castle.
The Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language. The region is said by many to be the most beautiful in the country, its richness in architectural heritage, with its charming villages and its world-famous castles, the region is also home to several vineyards that attract thousands of tourists every year. The most famous castles are Chambord, Amboise, Villandry and Chenonceau.
Chantilly is perhaps one of the most interesting castles in France. Its first quality is that it is just 25 minutes from Paris, an excellent program for a day trip.
Unlike the castles of the Loire Valley, Chantilly has a huge collection of paintings and furniture, transforming the place into an excellent museum. Its collection of paintings – called the Condé Museum – ranks it as the second French museum of ancient paintings after the Louvre. Few French museums have three Raphaëls, three Fra Angelico, four Watteau, five Ingres, three Delacroix.
Located in the Haute Normandie region, about 1 hour from Paris, Giverny is known for the house that is currently the museum of Claude Monet, one of the most famous painters of Impressionist art. The visit starts at a souvenir shop, then visitors get to know the garden that was portrayed several times by the painter and end at the house that also has a large original collection from the time.
Fontainebleau is another destination very close to Paris. Its castle is very important, as it was the royal residence of most of the French Monarchy. The royal city, which was built between a castle and the forest, is a historical heritage and has several beautiful squares and a wonderful theater, a great tip for those looking to delve even further into French culture.
Best known for its famous wine, synonymous with partying, the Champagne - Ardenne Region has tourist attractions that delight visitors. No other wine-producing region has its name immediately associated with joie de vivre and refinement like Champagne. You will be able to visit a famous Champagne cellar and see the entire process from the grape harvest to its tasting. Reims is the capital of the region and the coronation site of 33 kings in its beautiful Cathedral! The city has a rich historical heritage and is a great place to discover when in France.
Euro Disney Paris
Located a little over 30 kilometers from Paris, the French version of Disney has most of the main attractions present in North American parks, such as the Rock n Roller Coaster, different shows, the elevator that plummets to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and a very nice tour of the studios to see how the productions are made.
Moulin Rouge / Lido / Paradis Latin
These traditional Parisian Cabarets are unmissable attractions to watch a show full of glamor and return to the Belle Epoque (Beautiful Epoch) of Paris. You can watch the shows accompanied by champagne or enjoy a pre-show dinner.
Moulin Rouge – It is a traditional cabaret built in 1889, the show house is one of the most famous in Paris. Some of the great stars of French and international music, such as Edith Piaf, Liza Minnelli, Elton John and Frank Sinatra, have performed on this stage.
Read – Located on the Avenue des Champs Elysées, close to the Arc de Triomphe, the location of the Lido is ideal for an unforgettable night out in an internationally renowned Parisian cabaret. Since 1946, the cabaret offers a wonderful presentation of an hour and a half of show, in a dinner show washed down with champagne. This year 2015 the house reopened with a new show.
Latin Paradise – The most authentic Parisian cancan house. The show is a lot of fun, with high quality artists and more attractive prices.
Mont Saint-Michel is the third most visited tourist spot in France (after the Eiffel Tower and the Château de Versailles). The hill is a rocky islet that is in the center of a bay invaded by one of the highest tides in Europe, with an amplitude between high tide and low tide of up to 15 meters. On Mont Saint-Michel a gigantic abbey was built.
Seine River Cruise with Dinner
Enjoy a ride on the Seine aboard a fully glazed boat with a panoramic view over the most beautiful places in Paris illuminated. Enter the secret of Paris. The cuisine is carefully staged, the service is attentive and discreet, your eyes shine like never before… It's a “must”, a unique Parisian and cultural experience in the world that should be shared!

When to go?
In winter, snowfall in the mountain massifs makes winter sports lovers happy. Snow is rarer on the plains, found mainly north of the Loire River and falling sporadically in Paris.
In spring, the thermometer passes above 20ºC in the south. In Nice or Cannes, the first bathers appear. And after May, all the French walk the streets in their T-shirts. The days are longer, it is the time for the first trips to the countryside and the aperitifs on the terrace.
Summer is hot and calm. The sun dominates the whole country. There is something for all tastes: often 30ºC in Ajaccio or Marseille, closer to 25ºC in Brest or Deauville. The skins get tanned and the beaches are crowded. It's the time of great hikes in the mountains and trips to discover the regions of France.
In autumn the rain returns, then the mild temperatures as we approach Christmas. All over the country the trees are dressed in new colors. On the streets, people cover up a little more and the days get shorter and shorter.
