France - Culture
France the world's number one tourist destination, a country of contrasts from geography, culture, history arguably had the greatest influence on the development of Europe post mid ages.
Shopping, skiing the Alps lazing on the French Riviera visiting the wine areas of Champagne or indulging in the exquisite French cuisine, France has it all and that is why more tourists visit France than anywhere else in the world.
France is also famous for its culinary traditions, and the French take pride in their food. From freshly baked bread and croissants for breakfast, to a five course dinner in a gourmet restaurant (at a fraction of the price you'd pay back home), this savoir-faire is a way of life. A trip to France is also a trip for the tastebuds.
‘How could one describe a country which has 365 kinds of cheese'? De Gaulle once asked . Indeed. Sit back, relax, open a bottle of wine (French of course) and tuck in - you'll no doubt come back for more.
Paris has in excess of 80 museums and 200 art galleries, to name but a few.
- Musée d'Orsay, located in a beautifully restored railway station
- Palais du Louvre
- Georges Pompidou Centre of Modern Art
- New Quai Branly Museum
