France Travel Tips & Suggestions

Montpellier has a few rather shady characters especially once it gets dark, but a really lovely town. Very relaxed and pleasant.
Les Arcs is part of Paradiski which is one of the largest and best ski resorts in the world. Ski lifts are open winter and summer. We live in Nancroix, which is part of Les Arcs and right on the edge of the Vanoise national park and we love it. There is lots to do for outdoor people -- ski, snowboard, mountain bike ( …
Cassis is beautiful! Go there no matter what!
I have been in Beaugency 3 times and enjoyed each visit very much.
You could stay in Paris forever — if you can afford to — and still not get enough. I ran the whole time day and night and did not see the half of it. And remember, please at least try to speak a little French and you will be surprised how pleasant Parisians will be—don’t try and you will experience the stereotypical …
Everything in Chamonix, is truely remote from any skiing. I wouldn't go back, mostly because Chamonix as a ski area is over-rated. It's lots of small ski areas spread out. Lifts are slow, crowded, and you have to take a lift up above the tree line before you can take another lift to begin skiing. Go to Tignes …
I was in Cherbourg a few years years ago, when the U.S.A. had just started bombing Iraq. I was cursed, sworn at, shouted at in French, sworn at behind my back in English, cheated by the Ferry -- 100 Euro to make a two-hour crossing to Pourtsmouth. I was going to spend some days there hiking, and enjoying France, but …
Reims is a very unique and pretty place. People are nice and patient. It's good to travel the city with the day pass which cost 2.5 euro.
Strasbourg...Vive la France! I had my first taste of frog's legs (grenouille) here at a Chinese restaurant just outside of the train station. Very tasty. Not to mention, it was pretty darn cool to hear Chinese people speaking French. (I know, I know, I sound like a dumb American tourist). This was my first trip to …
Lyon has the best food in France, period. Save money by cooking in Paris, eat out in Lyon. Night life is good Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
What a beautiful city! I've been twice and both times it took my breath away. I recommend renting a small motor boat. Its a wonderful and extremely cheap way to get out on the lake. If you want to experience real french culture... get to Annecy!
You will learn that streets are not marked as obviously in Europe as they are in the states—look up on the corners of the buildings for placards. Train is the likely way you will arrive in Nice if you are a backpacker—just listen up for strikes because the trains and then the trains and the buses went on strike the …
The Centre mentioned is not worth it but Dijon is worth a couple of days. There are lots of OK hotels just out the train station for around 40 euros a night. Visit the Mustard Museum. The Visitor Centre is fairly helpful and just out of the train station -- they rent mountain bikes there.
Blois is a small city in the heart of the Loire valley. It can be a great central point to explore the famous UNESCO world heritage local castles. Some of Blois' castles, such as the famous Chambord, can be reached by train or bike. For others you will need a car to get to them. Bike trips can be done along the …
Cannes is one of the best-known cities of the French Riviera, mainly because of the film festival held in the city every May. It is during the Cannes Film Festival that the city gets super busy because everybody is hoping to bump into famous actors and film directors, which is very likely to happen. Cannes is a very …
Nice is located on the French Riviera and is a prime location for soaking up the sun and partying hard. You will also find plenty of water sports and some good hikes in the surrounding hills. The city is located directly on the Mediterranean, with a large stretch of pebble beach packed full of tourists and locals …
If you find yourself in Calais it is very likely you have just crossed the Channel, or are about to do so. If you have legal papers, then you will not have to stay for long in this small city. The attractions are very limited, with the Beffroi (high clock tower, part of the city hall) and a small museum dedicated to …
Les Rousses is a small four-season resort in the French Jura. It is mainly a family orientated ski resort with downhill and cross country skiing facilities. If you are looking for a crazy night life after spending the day of famous slopes and you aren't yet ready to return to your hostel, you will probably end up …
It is worth staying at an Avignon hostel because the city is very pleasant and welcoming, with an envious amount of history on show. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most unmissable place to visit is the giant Palais des Papes or Palace of the Popes. The city walls are impressive and rare but soon start to blend …
The first settlements near Toulouse date from the eighth or seventh century BC. The city history involves Romans, Visigoths, Francs, and France. The battle in Toulouse in the eighth century is one of the major turning points that stopped the Arab invasion in Europe. During the centuries, Toulouse has grown as one of …
