The sophisticated streets and timeless towns of France make this country a real winner for sightseeing. Around its remarkable regions and sprawling cities, you’ll find classic landmarks including the iconic Eiffel Tower, Disneyland Paris, and the Palace of Versailles. At Christmas, visit charming Strasbourg and wander through the tinsel-trimmed markets, mulled wine in hand.
Dine like a local
French food is known around the globe for its rich flavours, and the bakeries of France are highly regarded for their decadent sweet treats. The humble croissant is a household favourite and a flaky, buttery boulangerie staple. And, with French onion soup, coq au vin and confit duck on the menu, what more could you ask for?
Ski resorts with all sorts
Fly into Grenoble or Lyon and you’ll have access to some of the best ski slopes in Europe. Chocolate-box towns cluster between mighty mountain ranges, and designated ski lifts will take you up to the mix of easy, intermediate and advanced-level runs. You’ll be in the right place for fantastic après-ski scenes, too.
