If you have an itch for travel, we can be pretty sure France is somewhere on your itinerary. The most popular tourist destination in the world, France lures visitors with its legendary landmarks, its world-class museums, its fabled food and wines, its countryside chateaux, its sparkling Cote d’Azur—do we need to go on? Get lost in the Louvre and ride down the River Seine in timeless Paris. Glimpse celebrities in Cannes and soak in the infectious energy of gloriously gritty Marseilles. Listen to the surf laze into the pebbled shores of chic Nice. Ski the Alps, surf in Biarritz, live like royalty in the Loire Valley. And eat a croissant at least once.
