Whether you are planning a vacation for your family, with your loved one, friends or by yourself, France has precisely what you need to fulfill your every desire this summer. Besides the three specific reasons that we will provide you in this article, it is good to keep in mind that you will be eating one of the most exquisite cuisines while you are there. Let’s start now.
Disneyland Paris: A Great Time for the Whole Family
If you have never visited any of the Disney parks in the world, then there is no other location that you should choose this summer over Disneyland Paris. Everyone who has ever spent a day or more in this enchanting environment, no matter what their age was, has come back amazed from their sojourn. The adults suddenly find themselves travelling back in time to their youth, while kids can finally associate all the Disney movies that they have seen to their characters, as they have the chance to meet them in person. For the younger ones, these are moments of pure magic. All you have to do is to book one of the flights to Paris, and pack-up everyone’s bags. For a full immersion, you can also choose one of the Disney’s hotels, to stay on site.
Disneyland Paris is one of the most popular tourist attractions in France, but in all of Europe as well. It offers a wide variety of rides and attractions for all ages and interests, with a Top-5 composed of: The Pirates of the Caribbean, the Tower of Terror, It’s a Small World, Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast and Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain. Since there are more than 45 rides opened at all-time, there is one for each of the family members. But there are many more reasons to head to Disneyland Paris, one of the most important being the experience of visiting the park, where you will get to watch various shows, catch parades, and meet the Disney characters.
The City of Paris: Alone or as a Couple
Paris is a city that possesses a unique personality, like London, New York, Los Angeles and Barcelona. The first time that you visit is when you really understand why so many people choose the City of Light as their vacation destination, around the world. You won’t be the first or the last to look for flights to France to get to Paris, as the city remains in the most-visited list, year after year. But there are good reasons for that, which could take up a full book. We will now describe two, just to make your mouth water.
The Louvre Museum
To make it easy to understand why the Louvre Museum is a must for all, we will provide you with a few facts that say it all:
- One: It is the largest art museum on Earth (yes, on the whole planet), with galleries spanning over 15 acres.
- Two: The museum houses over 380,000 objects, including some of the most famous and valuable works of art in the world (yes, this includes the Mona Lisa).
- Three: The Louvre is the most-visited art museum in the world, with millions of people passing through its entrance door every year.
The Eiffel Tower
It would be unfair not to name the Dame de Fer (the Iron Lady), as we mention the most attractive sites in Paris. She is a monument that can’t be missed for anyone who travels to France. You can see her from afar, in many of the arrondissements of the city. The views from the top of the Eiffel Tower provide a stunning panoramic perspective of Paris, which will leave you breathless. Also, this could be one of the most romantic moments of your couple’s lives. Especially if you were to propose while standing at the top…
Touring One of the French Wine Regions With Your Friends
Want to have fun with the boys and girls that form your inner circle? Then you can choose one of the French wine regions and spend a few days visiting the various châteaux, where they grow the wine. You will taste divine liquids and bring back a few bottles back with you, no doubt. The best-known region being Bordeaux, home to some of the world’s most famous and expensive wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But you will also enjoy a tour of Burgundy (Bourgogne), Champagne, the Loire or the Rhône Valley, just as much. Make your choice by the wines that you like best or the ones that you know less. You will most certainly want to do it again all together, another time and in a different region of France.
