France is the third largest country in Europe in terms of area and the largest in the European Union. Its nearly 65 million inhabitants are concentrated mainly in the large cities and metropolitan regions, especially Paris, whose city walls and surrounding areas are home to over 10 million people. The many former colonies and today's overseas territories, shape the population and culture of the country to this day. It is therefore not surprising that the Republic regularly ranks among the leaders when it comes to education, quality of life and life expectancy
France is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world: every year millions of visitors come to the country, which is bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and on the other by the Mediterranean Sea. Especially Brittany, Provence and the capital Paris are among the most popular destinations for excursions and travel.
Paris is the Mecca of fashion, art and culture lovers. Numerous attractions like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Obelisk of Luxor or the Arc de Triomphe invite you to marvel and linger. Take the time to get to know Paris from its exclusive side, for example during a guided tour or a city tour. Once on site, climbing the Eiffel Tower is also a must. The more than 100 year old landmark with its 324 meters offers a fantastic view over the French capital. A little tip: It is best to book the tickets in advance. This way you avoid the long waiting times at the ticket counters
If you prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of a big city, there are also numerous coastal towns to explore on special adventure tours and excursions: guided tours of Saint Tropez or following in the footsteps of the great Paul Cézannes through Provence. And while you're there, you might as well take a stroll through Marseille and let the beautiful buildings of the oldest city in France take you back to a bygone era
