What are the best places to stay in France?
Paris is the perfect spot to begin your adventure when booking France accommodation and flight packages. It’s home to many of the country’s most famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Sacré Coeur. It’s also the fashion capital of France (and sometimes the world) and the place to be for fashion lovers who book France holiday packages. Browse designer boutiques along the Champs-Élysées or go for a shopping spree in Les Galeries LaFayette. Are you more into art and culture? Be sure to include museums like the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay on your list of things to do while holidaying on France packages.
Head to Nice on France holiday packages to take in the Mediterranean coastline. Nice is the largest city of the French Riviera and has a more laid-back vibe compared to bustling Paris. The city and surrounding region are known for beautiful beaches and colourful architecture. Away from the beach, Nice boasts an exciting art scene and excellent selection of restaurants and bars tucked into the narrow streets of Vieille Ville (the Old Town). Highlights of the city include Colline du Château, Promenade des Anglais, and Musée du Palais Lascaris. Nice’s central location in the French Riviera also makes it the perfect base for day trips while holidaying on France packages – Cannes, Monaco, and Antibes are a quick train journey away.
Lyon is the capital of France’s Rhône-Alpes region, and it’s within reach of both the Alps and Beaujolais wine region. The city itself is home to both Ancient Roman and Renaissance history, both of which are displayed in the architecture of Vieux Lyon. Another thing drawing visitors to Lyon is its food. Lyon is the gastronomic capital of France, and visitors who book France holiday packages can try the local delicacies at traditional bouchon restaurants. Places to have on your radar when heading to Lyon with France packages include Fourvière Basilica, Institut Lumière, Parc de la Tête d’Or, and Traboule Renaissance passageways in Vieux Lyon and Croix-Russe.
What’s on in France?
Tour de France
The world-famous Tour de France cycling race takes place each summer. Cyclists follow a 3,500-kilometre route crisscrossing through France. While the exact route changes yearly, certain spots are almost always featured along the way, including peaks of the Alps and Pyrenées mountains before finishing on Paris’s Champs-Élysées. Look into hotels and accommodation in France in July to watch a portion of the race or even follow it to a few spots along the route.
Fête de la Gastronomie
It’s always a good time for foodies to travel on France accommodation and flight packages, but particularly during the Fête de la Gastronomie. The food festival holds events all across the country, including major cities like Paris and Lyon and more regional spots throughout Brittany and Provence. Various events on offer include cooking masterclasses and tastings from some of France’s top chefs, with a focus on unique French regional dishes. Attend Fête de la Gastronomie by booking France holiday packages for travel in late September.
Fête des Lumières
Fête des Lumières is one of France’s most famous annual events. The Lyon light festival evolved from a 19th century tradition when locals placed colourful lights in their windows to honour Virgin Mary. Visitors who attend Fête des Lumières today can take in an exciting festival on a much larger scale than its modest origins. Light installations pop up in the streets and on famous landmarks all across Lyon. Plan to travel on France packages in early December to see the Fête des Lumières, and be sure to reserve your hotel early as rooms book out quickly.
