From the romance encapsulating Paris and the stunning coastline, incredible cuisine and artistic allure of Normandy, and everything in between, France reigns as the world's pinnacle of food, fashion, and wine. The regions of Champagne, Burgundy, Chablis, and Bordeaux embody wine-making at their best. Simple pleasures await at a Parisian cafe tucked down a side street or on a drive along the stunning Bay of Marseilles. Blend a passion for the good life with colorful culture, timeless art, exclusive architecture, and timeless landscapes, and you have France.
