Describing a whole lot of France is like describing a whole lot of magic, all around you for the taking. When compared to other countries in the world, France is one of the most well-known, especially when it comes to food, fashion, travel and above all else, romance. In fact, that’s what makes Paris, for instance, such a magical city. The fact that there is so much love in France… Left, right and everywhere you look, adds to everything else and that is why it is considered one of the most loved places to travel to on earth.
With that being said, the French are a delight in itself and once visited, it would be extremely hard finishing your trip without planning your return back.
If this is your first trip, however, you might be wondering, just what could you do in France and what if you’re not a romantic yourself? Is France still the ideal destination, even if you’re a cynic? The answer is yes and a thousand times again, yes.
Paris Musee de Louvre
Now, of course, it all starts in Paris… The Musee de Louvre does not only encompass the magic of France but is an artistic dream, one that is recognized as one of the worlds most visited museums. Although the outside of this pyramid-like building is enchanting all by itself, inside lies several art collection pieces that includes everything from the Egyptian mummies to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa painting. This iconic museum serves as a potent symbol of the French finesse, as well as its sensitivity.
Versailles Palace (Chateau de Versailles)
Once serving as the king’s palace in 1682 and now recognized as the Hall of Mirrors, the glittering enfilade and the glided royal apartments, were all considered to be fit for royalty. If you’ve ever wanted to see a golden palace and experience the rich history thereof, then the Versailles Palace is a must-see.
Paris: Eiffel Tower
We bet you know this one. The Eiffel Tower commemorates the French Revolution’s centennial celebrations. It is one of the biggest landmarks in France and is the world’s most visited and paid monument by global travellers. The tower was constructed by a man name Gustave Eiffel and was constructed in 1889. Be sure to capture a glance of it at night, out on the Champs de Mars. There are millions of multicolour lights on the tower which will make you understand just why this is the spot for a marriage proposal or even just a big date. Romance overload.
Bridging the border between Normandy and Brittany is Abbaye du Mont Sant-Michel. This abbey is a legendary, artistic and medieval architecture which combines perfectly with the very forces of nature. It is situated on top of a tidal island and marks as a symbol of the French heroic resistance towards the English during the war. Definitely another historic must-see.
