Travel in France

Travel to the country of tourism

(continuer en français) – Last updated: November 2, 2019

It is no surprise that France regularly ranks first among the countries receiving the most visitors. There are many reasons for this, beautiful and varied landscapes, architecture that owes as much to the depth of history as to the taste of beautiful forms, artistic creation that can be found in museums as well as in the streets and, of course, gastronomy.

There are beautiful things to see in all regions and large cities have a heritage that often transforms their centres into museum cities. The countryside has many villages that emphasize regional varieties. Not to mention castles and abbeys that sublimate the most beautiful places.

The French can be blamed for their moaning and grumpy side, but in the end it pushes them towards excellence to always emphasize what is wrong. Once the ice is broken, they are attentive hosts who, in addition to their professionalism, show a great attachment to their land.

France is the land of joie de vivre, perhaps even more for visitors than for its inhabitants.

To facilitate the sorting, I will use the French departmental codes, 96 for Metropolitan France (Corsica has double counting), 5 for Overseas France and the 5 Overseas Communities.

Well, I haven’t been everywhere, not yet… to keep the dream going. However, many of my first trips date back to before the digital age, the digitization of my first photos does not often satisfy me, so I prefer to think about going back to rediscover these beautiful places to complement my travel notes.
