France is a huge and diverse country containing beautiful scenery from its Mediterranean coastline, through its rugged Massif Central and onto to the snowy heights of the Alps. When travelling to France, you will also enjoy a culture of gastronomy, fine wines, theater, fashion and art. The best time to go to France depends on the nature of the vacation, with spring and autumn being the best time to visit major cities, while the resorts destinations of the French Riviera like Nice and Cannes come alive from July to September. Skiing vacations in the Alps reach their peak season during the winter months of December to April.
There are several options to travel to France and flights are not always the fastest and easiest way to reach the country. If you take the Eurostar train from London to Paris, you can reach the city centre in only two hours and 30 minutes.
Most visitors who travel to France by flight land at Paris, giving them the perfect opportunity for taking a few days to explore its iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame and Sacre-Coeur Cathedrals and the lively Moulin Rouge cabaret shows. World-class art can be appreciated in the Louvre, the Pompidou Centre and the Musee D'Orsay, home to many of Monet's best works. World War II and D-Day history buffs can take in a tour of the Normandy Landing beaches in northern France while castles and vineyards can be visited in the central regions of Burgundy and Auvergne. The Cote d'Azur coastline is ideal for beach holidays and sailing while stunning mountain scenery can be found all year round on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees and in the French Alps.
