About the country

France, the beautiful country of lights, luxury, and romance, is world-renowned for its wine, classy elegance, and fine dining. As the saying goes, "Nothing is real except French wine". There’s fun for everyone, and there are always new things to explore and discover. For the young or the young at heart, plan a trip to Disneyland Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower and see the nation’s capital at your feet. Pay your respects to the Unknown Soldier at the Arc de Triomphe.

The French are acclaimed the world-over for their celebrated masterpieces which just ooze grandeur, sophistication, and sensuality. The Eiffel Tower, easily one of the most-recognized and most-visited monuments in the world, exemplifies this best.  The place where many people embark on their journey of togetherness, the Eiffel Tower is rightly called the Symbol of Love. This monument like so many others serves to convey that romance and aesthetic sensibilities are the defining factor in modern-day France which merges effortlessly the opulence of yore with the avant-garde breakthroughs of the present day.

Fancy a longer trip? Spend a day in the Loire Valley and take a trip back in time to the hundreds of chateaus dating back to medieval times. The artist in you will want to visit the Musée du Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, and the Centre Pompidou. You’ll marvel at Manet, Michelangelo, and Monet and be inspired to create your own masterpieces. Take an exhilarating trip for an extra Adrenalin Kick in Chamonix. Climb the cliffs, hike the trails, or fly like a bird by parasailing down the mountain. Go on your own pilgrimage to Notre-Dame, the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, and Ste-Chapelle & Chartres. Go even further back in time to an outstanding collection of Roman monuments in Nîmes. ack your camera and your comfy sneakers, France is all yours for the taking.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
