France Suggested Trips
Travel Tips for Suggested Trips in France
Reims, Champagne-Ardenne, France
The main attraction in Reims is the beautiful flamboyant Gothic cathedral, where numerous French kings were crowned. The cathedral also features stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. But it's also a wonderful little town for wandering in, and the extra bonus is that you are in Champagne. You can get a taste of the very finest Champagnes, either in a glass, or worked into all manner of dishes, like a Champagne-vinaigrette-dressed salad, or chicken braised in Champagne.
Strasbourg, Alsace, France
if you want to eat something very good, go to LITTLE FRANCE area!
Bordeaux, Aquitaine, France
Bordeaux is a very nice town, I lived there for six months.
If you like to go out and like latin music, check out the Calle Ocho in the Rue du Loup. It's quite small and hot, but the atmosphere is amazing! For just grabbing a pint, I really enjoyed the Houses of Parliament, an English pub in the rue du parlement.
The rue Ste-Catherine is Bordeaux' shopping street and is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. If you don't find what you're looking for there, you won't find it anywhere.
A very nice calm place to sit and enjoy the surroundings is at the hôtel de ville, and also the place Gambetta.
The city has a lot of public transport (trams busses), but most things are within walking range.
Paris, Ile-de-France, France
There's a side-entrance to the Louvre Museum named Port de Lions. It's located between the Pont du Carrousel and the Pont Royal in the southwing of the museum. If you don't want to wait for hours in line at the pyrmid, this is the way to be in the Louvre in 2 minutes.
Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France
Parking is quite restricted and pou are unlikely to get away without having to pay. If you have kids with you, walk past the tourist shops and follow the river. There are some great areas to scramble over the rocks.
