France, with its splendid beauty is the most popular tourist destination in the world. There are about 80 million tourists who visit France each year- some of them are first timers awaiting to be captivated by its allure but most of them are people who fall in love with France all over again.

The country has everything that a wanderlust would want. France owns some of the most charming cities in the world. Paris, often called the City of Romance and the country's capital city offers countless attractions with the breathtaking Eiffel Tower to the Notre Dame Cathedral. The Louvre Museum and the Picasso Museums showcase the masterpieces of legendary artists Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso. Lyon and Marseille are equally delightful with the world renowned French architecture. On the other hand, Cannes, Nice and St. Tropez are where some of the fantastic beaches can be found.
