Why Visit France

France is home to some of the world’s most famous art. The Musee du Louvre in Paris in particular is a must-see on the banks of the Seine to view Leonardo da Vinci, Eugene Delacroix and Michelangelo. Although no longer governed by royalty, their notorious palaces still exist in all their glory. The Palace of Versailles which once housed Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI provides perfectly manicured gardens to accompany the tour and the Palace at Chambord in the Loire Valley gives the feel of a real life fairytale.

French cuisine is, perhaps, the ultimate indulgence, infamous for its dining experiences from a simple country fare to complete banquets. What better way to start your days with croissants and cafe au lait in a sidewalk cafe, and end it with cassoulet, french bread, freshly sliced cheese and a glass of Bordeaux or claret. It also provides the perfect experience to hear the ‘language of love’ first hand and practice your french with shopkeepers and casual acquaintances.
