5 Amazing Places to Visit in France

AD. This is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

As a recent languages graduate I would love to travel to France again one day, and there are so many gorgeous, pretty places that would make for amazing places to visit.

Whether it’s a fun city break or a relaxing beach visit, there are so many amazing places I want to visit in France one day- and I think it’s such a great country to visit for a little bit of everything. France has a lot of history, a beautiful language, and all the delicious food you could want!

Below, I’ve put together a list of 5 amazing places to visit in France, including beautiful beaches and historic cities that make the perfect holiday when it is safe to travel again.


Marseilles is an amazing place to visit in France as it has a little bit of everything. It’s right on the South coast so it has lovely weather and beautiful beaches, but it’s also a city so whether you’re interested in a city break or a beach visit, you can have the best of both worlds.

Marseilles always gives me such a glamorous feeling, and I’d love to visit one day!


Cannes is a town down on the French Riviera, and it is full of warm and sandy beaches. I love all the glamorous images from the Cannes Film Festival every year, and I would love to visit this famous town one day.


I love Paris! It’s such a lovely city for tourists, and full of cute places to visit. Paris is the perfect city break, and it is full of cafรฉs, restaurants, bridges, and cobbled streets that are steeped in history. I loved it when I visited a few years ago, and I really recommend it as a place to visit in France.

Home to many famous authors of the past, such as Ernest Hemingway and Simone de Beauvoir, I would love to go back to Paris one day soon.

Paris has so many lovely little places to stay, too. There are many ways to make a booking for fantastic holiday accommodation across France, including ebooking sites that put together any information about hotels and other places to book, and allow you to make a reservation for a service via the Internet.

Normandy is another historic place to visit up in the North of France, and it is full of history about the wars that I find very interesting. I’d love to check out a few of the Norther regions of France, and see what amazing history and places to visit they have to offer.


I would love to visit Versailles one day! Just outside Paris, Versailles is home to the fantastic Palace of Versailles, and it looks like such a beautiful place to visit. Whether you’re interested in history, or you just like the idea of visiting some beautiful architecture, I really recommend visiting Versailles.

What do you think of these places I want to visit in France? Have you ever visited France? Do you have any places you’d like to visit in France?

      1. Not at all! It’s a big country and lists, by their nature, can change according to one’s mood etc. For instance, we get a lot of rain here and that could see us drop off lists haha. That said, it’s well worth visiting! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love France. I’ve been enamoured with the country and the language since I was little and I find it a bit of a travesty that my only real experience of it is Disneyland Paris, one day trip to Versailles, and my Year Abroad in the town of Chรขteauroux. I want to be able to see the places my grandparents used to visit a lot around Normandy and Brittany, especially if they’re not particularly touristy areas. Saying that, I would like to spend a bit of time in Paris too rather than simply cross it in order to go somewhere else.

  4. I went to Paris for honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚ To agree with one of your other commenters, the people in Paris (at least the ones I met) were not friendly at all and also kept having souvenirs of the Eiffel Tower jingled in my face which was intimidating! In some respects it did seem like London. I went to the Louvre though and saw the Mona Lisa, did you?

  5. Normandy is fascinating and I definitely enjoyed it. Two other places in France I loved are Bordeaux/St. Emilion and Avignon. There are so many wonderful parts of France. My husband and I are planning to do a trip to the World War I sites one of these days. Thanks for the recommendations!
