Cities to experience France
It is impossible not to mention the enchanting capital, Paris, when the talk falls on travel to France. The city offers a wealth of cultural experiences that will take even the most persistent traveler several days to explore.
If you drop by the city on your holiday in France, do not deceive yourself to visit one of the many local bakeries, where you can enjoy a croissant and coffee in French style while watching the city wake up.
If you visit the French Riviera on trips to France, then do not miss Nice, which is a true Mediterranean paradise with its long white sandy beaches.
If you choose to stay in Nice on your trip to France, you can easily explore the surrounding cities such as Cannes, Antibes and the state of Monaco by public transport. If there is time in the day program, take a trip to the small charming town of Menton, which is right up against the Italian border.
The small village of Buoux is located in the heart of the Luberon Nature Park in Provence. Due to the city’s geographical location, it has had a crucial historical military significance. Most of the houses in the town can be dated back to the middle or end of the 17th century.
On trips to France in Buoux, you will therefore also find a number of historical gems. In the city you will find, among other things, the prehistoric Buoux Fort, which is more than 3,000 years old. The city is also a true paradise for climbing enthusiasts as it is surrounded by cliffs and caves.
Isle sur la Sorgue
If the trip to Provence is on trips to France, then the city of Isle sur la Sorgue is worth a visit. The medieval town is located at the foot of the Plateau de Vaucluse, and is permeated by the Sorgue river, making it a true canal town.
Isle sur la Sorgue is known for its many antique shops and markets. If you arrive in the city well in advance, then you can go hunting among the many French antiques and fine French ingredients.
Les Contamines is a true gem for ski sports enthusiasts, but the city can do so much more than that. Located safely in the Montjoie Valley, Les Contamines is particularly known for producing the finest cheeses you can buy in the many local cheese shops on trips to France.
Unlike many other ski towns in the French Alps, the town has not been taken over by large concrete buildings. All the houses are instead covered with wood, and on trips to France you therefore still get the experience of a classic small French alpine town.
Cancale is a picturesque fishing village in Provence, which is especially known among Frenchmen and foodies for their oysters. The fishermen of the town have been growing oysters for centuries, and the best you will find near the port of La Houle on trips to France.
The fishing town, however, offers not only oysters, but also fantastic coastlines. If you go west along the beaches on trips to France, you can get a good view of the monastery of Mont-Saint-Michel, which most of all looks like something taken out of an adventure.
