Whether it is the lavender fields of Provence; gilded, lavish Versailles; or the Eiffel tower that best represents France to you, the fact you have to choose is a testament to the country’s rich offerings. Tourists seek out its fine art, architecture, music, fashion, and Mont Blanc, one of the tallest mountains in the world. What’s more, it also has the best cheese. France is the most visited country in the world, with its capital, Paris, being its most popular destination. When you do visit, you will find that the principles of the French national motto “liberté, égalité, fraternité” (liberty, equality, and fraternity) are alive and well, as is a vibrant cuisine that contributed the concept of fine dining to the world. To be French is a privilege reserved for just shy of seventy million people – but everyone is free to visit, again and again.
