With its diverse landscape, vibrant culture, and unmatched wine and cheese, you may never want to leave France! A gem of western Europe, France is full of amazing things to do. Though parts of it can get quite touristy (for good reason!), there are tons of places in France to explore that are well off the beaten path.

Spring and Fall
As a hot tourist destination, the spring and fall months are ideal for visits to France. During these times, you can avoid the extreme heat and crowds of the summer months.

Yes, France is a relatively expensive country to travel to. However, there are ways to save money on your trip. We recommend staying in hostels or using for accommodations, doing your research to avoid tourist traps, and using public transportation to get around.

There are many beautiful and interesting places to visit in France outside of Paris, such as Lyon, the Côte d'Azur, Bordeaux, and the Alsace region.

How to Get Around France

France has an extremely well connected public transportation system, making it very easy to travel around the country without needing to rent a car.

France’s national rail operator, SNCF, offers an extensive network of high-speed TGV trains, connecting major cities across the country. TGV trains are known for their comfort, speed, and punctuality, making them an ideal choice for long-distance travel.

For shorter distances or more budget-conscious travelers, buses offer a convenient and affordable option. Several bus companies operate in France, including FlixBus, Eurolines, and Ouibus. Buses typically offer more flexibility in terms of schedules and stops, making them a good choice for exploring smaller towns and villages.
