Arriving in France

France is a large country with several airports, and flights to France from the UK are frequent. The largest airports are in Paris, and this is a good base from which to start your travels in the country, as the city itself has lots to offer. Flights into the major city airports are usually more expensive than flying into a suburban airport such as Paris Beauvais, which offers cheap flights to France with the budget airline Ryanair. You get a lower airfare due to the hour-long distance from the main city. An airfare to France can be expensive so this is a good option. If you want to avoid France flights, you can also get to the country from London via a Eurostar train through the Channel Tunnel. This will take you directly into Paris' main train stations; but can be a costly option.

Getting Around France

France has a strong and reliable rail network called the SNCF, with train stations in every area. The TGV fleet are France's high-speed trains; taking you quickly across the country to all major cities. The TER trains are their regional service; taking you on more scenic routes to smaller towns.

Within the major cities themselves, several different modes of transport are available to take you from place to place. In Paris, the Metro is the most popular and easiest to use. It resembles the London Underground, and can take you quickly underground to many points across the city. In a city like Bordeaux, a tram service is available to take you around the city.

Main Attractions in France

France is a richly cultured country, with lots of historical attractions to visit, such as the Palace of Versailles in Versailles, and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. France is also famed for its art, with artists such as Leonardo da Vinci hailing from the country. The major art museums lie in Paris itself. View the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, or Vincent Van Gogh's works at the Musée d'Orsay.

Lesser-known, but just as interesting to visit is the town of Evian, where you can see and drink from the Evian mineral water spa. Disneyland Paris (which sits approximately 45 minutes from Paris city and has its own train station) is also must see attraction.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

France has some of the world's finest restaurants and designer boutiques. The original Louis Vuitton store is in the city of Paris, and further out on the coast, the restaurants in Cannes offer the finest seafood. Dining in the country varies in price; but the closer you are to a major tourist attraction such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or the seafront in Monaco, the higher the prices get. Rural France tends to be quiet at night; but in the major cities you can enjoy lively jazz music in cafes, or take in a show such as the famous Moulin Rouge.
