Introduction

Scope out Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, stay the night in the Chateau de Castel Novel in Varetz, visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site Palace of Versailles, go wine tasting in the Cote d'Or in Burgundy... it's no wonder France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

You can start hiking the Walkers' Haute Route in the Alps from Chamonix (near to Mont Blanc), blast the slopes of the huge Trois Vallees ski area, or stretch out on the longest uninterrupted expanse of sand in Europe at Hossegor, end of the Cote D'Argent.

The sheer volume of things to do in France can be overwhelming, but luckily we got you covered. Matador has loads of articles about France, ranging from how to get underground in Paris, to the best nude beaches, and from where to learn the art of French cooking, to how to avoid the tourist traps.
