If you’re planning a romantic getaway there’s nowhere better than Paris. Any trip to Paris wouldn't be complete without a climb up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Originally built for the 1889 World Fair, its elegant structure is a brilliant way to get a glimpse of all the city has to offer. Another must-see in Paris is the Musée du Louvre. One of the largest and most diverse museums in the world, the Louvre is home to some 35,000 works of art including the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. Your ticket will be valid for the whole day, and you’ll need at least that to see even a small part of what’s on offer, so make sure you leave enough time to enjoy it all.
If the Louvre leaves you wanting more, then a great place to visit is the Musée Rodin, dedicated to the work of the world-famous sculpture and painter, Auguste Rodin. The museum’s collection is fantastic and includes some of Rodin’s most famous work like his sculpture, The Kiss.
One of France’s most iconic places to visit, Mont Saint-Michel is a historic island commune in Normandy. The area has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is best known for its Norman Benedictine abbey. Make sure you wear comfy shoes when you visit, as the only way to get around the island is on foot, and there are lots of steps to climb.
If you’re interested in some of France’s World War Two history, a fascinating place to visit are the beaches used in the D-Day landings. The landings took place along 80km of beaches, the most famous being Omaha, Juno and Utah. Lots of the villages dotted along the beaches have their own museums focusing on the unique events.
France’s national and natural parks are spread all around the country. But for the most stunning scenery, we recommend heading south. Here you’ll find the rugged mountain landscapes of the Pyrennes and the alpine woods and lakes of Ecrins, making them particularly scenic choices for a France national park holiday.
