To Paris and beyond

Oh, là là. Vive la France!

If you enjoyed Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” or Pixar’s “Ratatouille,” then chances are you are already in love with France. Yet, all it takes is a walk along its famous streets, a bite of its great pastries, and a visit to France’s countryside to experience the thrill lovers of this wonderful country never get tired of.

When it comes to tourism, France is the most-visited country in the world. In Paris, tourists flock to sights like the Louvre (the most-visited museum in the world), Sacre-Coeur and the Eiffel Tower, and there is much more to see nearby.

Dozens of day trips from Paris are available, like Normandy, the Champagne region, and Mont Saint-Michel. With more time, places like Provence, Alsace and the Loire Valley are within your reach.

And then there’s the cuisine and wine. The French are so particular about what ends up in their stomach that UNESCO added food to the list of intangible cultural heritage in 2010.
