Major Attractions in France
There's so much to see and do in France that you might find yourself returning again and again. In Paris, visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the Arc de Triomphe. Gourmet restaurants and charming France hotels are plentiful in the "City of Lights." The palace of Versailles is an easy day-trip from Paris, and so is the Palace of Fontainebleau. In the south of France, the French Riviera has the destination cities of Nice and Cannes. Beach resorts and scenic viewpoints line the Riviera, and the picturesque villages of Provence are a must-see.
