Find out more about touring France. A diverse Country that is loved by millions of people. So much so that many Brits have made it their home, or second home. Paris is one of the most visited Cities in the World, and justifiably so for it's romance, culture and uplifting qualities.

Top regions for tourism in France include the majestic Loire Valley, the Dordogne and Lot valleys, and great cities like Nantes, Strasbourg, Rennes, Toulouse, Nice, Bordeaux and Lille. If you like wine you'll love France. Visit one of the famous wine regions like Burgundy or Champagne. Choose from a diverse environment from the snowy slopes of the Alps or Pyrenees, or to the lush lavender fields of Provence. Cruise on the canals in the south of France or try walking or cycling holiday in rural France.

France attracted over 80 million tourists in 2012, making it the most popular tourist destination in the world.

France has 37 sites inscribed in UNESCO's World Heritage List and features cities of high cultural interest (Paris being the foremost, but also Toulouse, Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Lyon, and others), beaches and seaside resorts, ski resorts, and rural regions that many enjoy for their beauty and tranquility. Small and picturesque French villages like Locronan or Collonges-la-Rouge are protected and worth a visit, and many small old towns have got a lot of history and an air of quaintness. The French love their gardens and over two hundred gardens are classified by the French Ministry of Culture.

The old stately house in France form a masive part of the heritage and any trip to France must include a Château or two. From maginficent cathedrals to rivers cascading through verdant gorges, France never seems to tire you.
