France is renowned for its architecture, art, cinema, cuisine, fashion, literature, music and wine. The most significant attraction in France, and for that matter Europe, is the unforgettable city of Paris. It exudes ambiance and style. Further south, on the Cote d’Azur, Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo are perennial favorites, with an excellent climate, wonderful cuisine, sightseeing and nightlife, and an unbeatable choice of hotels. France's geography stretches from rugged coastline to seemingly infinite beaches, from bustling cities to quaint countryside villages and from a sun-drenched isle to luxury mountain ski resorts.
