For most people who have never been there, France is all about Eiffel Tower and Moulin Rouge. But for those who have read a lot about another country, the amount of beautiful beaches, majestic mountains and picturesque countryside in France is countless. Cheese, incredible wine and inflated waiters are what France is famous for. The long history of its culture, people, architectural designs and excellent remnants make France as more than just a place to visit. It’s a romantic country to travel to.
Travel France by Train
Do you know that one of the best ways to explore around the country is by taking train in France? With its endless beauty of nature, travel France by train will definitely feed your desire of learning more about the country. Rail Europe is one of the most reliable ones out there which will take you across different provincial cities, rivers and mountains.(Image by Adrian Nicholls)
Things Not To Miss
If this is your first time in France, you will probably need more than just Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. For a staggeringly impressive sightseeing, head over to Chateaux of the Loire at River Loire or even the champagne tasting at Epernay’s maisons. The most famous champagne would be Dom Perignon but we can assure you there are plenty of others as well. For stunning views during hiking, go to Les Gorges Du Verdon where you will be awed by the scents and colors of the places that is pretty similar to the Grand Canyon.
If you travel France by train, you would probably be able to witness some of the best beaches in the country. There is nothing much more pleasing than turquoise water and white shell sand in Corsica. Other than that, we also think that Bordeaux is a must-visit place for refined red wines and a little bit of English history in France. When you’re too tired of all the walking and sightseeing, take a relaxing stroll at St-Ouen Flea Market for an entire weekend morning as you browse around for some additional items to be brought back home. Yes, this is the mother flea market of Paris.
Food and Drink
France is famous for its cuisine and wine, therefore, you should not miss the opportunity to try some of its best food and drink. We suggest pampering yourself with a croissant and hot chocolate or tea for breakfast, as well as tasting the crepes or pizzerias. Other snacks include the croques-madame and croques-monsieur, merguez and gauffres. When it comes to choosing wine in France, you can easily feel intimidated by the so-called French expertise. There are tips and tricks on choosing wine, however, our best advice is to trust your own taste. This will be more helpful than a couple of books telling you which wine is the best.(Image by Nathan Cooke)
France is definitely a place worth a visit. Whether you are traveling France by train or just driving across one city to another, what you must remember is that, a trip to France is not official without all of the food and drink tasting. You are in one of the most romantic places in the world and it doesn’t have to stop you from pampering yourself with delicious cuisine, right?
