Maybe you’ve already visited France and you’re looking for something different from what everyone sees, or if you’re one of those tourists who like to get lost in the details of the great countries, those who like to venture into the unknown and marvel at the lesser-known wonders. Here we present a list of places to visit in France apart from Paris and its Eiffel Tower.
The Louvre Museum
This is undoubtedly the most important museum in the world, if you like art and science, this museum is for you. It has iconic paintings such as La Gioconda, by Leonardo da Vinci, and a lot of works that have nothing to envy to any other museum in the world. Its iconic pyramid shape is recognizable by all people who know about general culture.
The Castle of Chenonceau
One of the most beautiful castles that we will find on the Loire route, this castle located in the Loire Valley, although it is one of the many castles that are found here, is a castle that does not fail to go unnoticed by all its visitors.
One of the most visited places in France, with 3.2 million visitors every year attracted by its prodigious architecture. The abbey consecrated to the cult of the archangel San Miguel gives its name to the island. The statue of San Miguel Arcángel stands 170 meters above the shore. If you run with the luck of being able to see the sunset in one of the enclaves, you will be able to enjoy a landscape that will leave you amazed the rest of your life.
Like Mont Saint-Michel, this medieval town located in Languedoc-Roussillon is a must-see destination for all those travelers who enjoy traveling, culture and history. Its stone streets and its sunset will make you believe that you are in a fairy tale.
If you went to the city of Carcassonne you can do this route, where you can see, among others, the castle of Peyrepertuse, a castle located on a cliff that will let you see the whole landscape. But we recommend to travel this route outside the hot months, and when there are not so many tourists, as this can hinder the experience a bit, and the truth is that when we travel we want only the best.
To finish the list, but no less important, we have the Costa Azul, also known as the French Riviera, one of the world’s centers of tourism, and the residence of many famous people. We can find such emblematic places as Monaco, Cannes or St. Tropez. It is also a site known for its film festival, for all those who love movies that have the opportunity to come and enjoy.
