What really matters is soaking up culture. Diving into France’s treasure trove and learning something new. Visiting amazing museums, admiring architectural gems, following in the footsteps of artists and writers. Catching an exhibition or stopping by an artisan’s workshop. Enjoying theatres, concerts and festivals. Hearing and speaking the French language. Strolling around ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And perhaps best of all: appreciating the contrast between France’s rich history and its surprising modernity.
