France Tourism: Best of France
There's much more to France than Paris—from the fairy-tale châteaux of the Loire Valley to the lavender fields of Provence, and the French Riviera's celebrity-studded beaches. World-famous gastronomy and fine wines provide the perfect complement to the country's alpine views and architectural masterpieces.

- ByUSA TODAY 10BestBest Things to Do And See In And Around ParisBeyond the obvious splendors of the Eiffel Tower, the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris and the Sacre-Cœur Basilica, Paris has a wealth of sites and experiences to offer. Some of these treasures, such as the covered passage of Galerie Vivienne, are found right under your nose as you walk the city's charming streets. And others, like the spectacular Château de Chantilly and its Grand Stables, are to be found just a quick 20-minute train ride away. The Parc Rives de Seine is a popular destination for families and sporty types, or even just people looking for a nice outdoor walk along the Seine or a place to picnic by the river. On warm spring, summer and fall evenings, you'll find groups of friends enjoying a bottle of wine al fresco or ordering a beer at one of the many food installations there. Legend has it that one of our American presidents said to his French hosts, "Why have you taken me seven times to Versailles and only once to Chantilly?" The logic of this question becomes eminently and instantly clear once you visit this picturesque village just 20 minutes from Paris. In Paris, it pays to just wander because many Parisian gems and treasures can be found along a meandering path. The Galerie Vivienne, for example, is one of these gems. Its main entrance is tucked in just behind the Palais Royal and once you enter into this covered passage, you feel yourself instantly transported through time. One last reassurance when exploring the city: It's difficult to get lost in Paris. The Seine always points you in the right direction. And there is even a boat-bus service, the Batobus, that you can hop on and off to motor you from the Eiffel Tower to the Notre Dame by riverway, and back again, if you so choose.

- ByEF Education First7 hidden gems in Paris (that won’t break the bank)Ah, Paris! There’s nothing more sophisticated than strolling through ancient streets lined with swanky boutique shops and more fancy hair salons than you can shake a pair of curling irons at. But what if you’re in search of a more chilled experience? Something that won’t break the bank? We asked a few Parisian students for their favorite hidden haunts and compiled this exclusive list for your reading and visiting pleasure. (Just don’t tell anyone we told you!)7 items
- ByRefinery29Paris Travel Guide -Best Restaurants, Bars, HotelsFor many travelers, a trip to a bucket-list city like Paris is the pinnacle of luxury. And whether that encompasses having the luxury of time (i.e. accrued vacation days to max out your stay) or the luxury of a cushy travel fund, there are plenty of reasons a visit can seem out of reach. But with some strategic planning, it's more than possible to explore the City of Lights with a limited budget and timeframe — and have a good time to boot. To master the 36-hour escape, we've determined one needs to be equipped with the following: First, a list of your absolute must-hit spots, so you can map out a clear and efficient itinerary. Second, a walkable pair of sneakers — like the Wool Runners or new Tree Skippers from Allbirds, which are super lightweight, easy to pack, and go with everything — so you can roam the town comfortably and quickly. We primed R29 director of talent partnerships Marni Katz with both as she set out on her own transatlantic trek to France for a stopover during fashion week. Read on for the highlights (as in, the hippest juice bars, hotels, and sights) that will give any visitor the total Parisian experience, with time to spare.
