by Solo Traveler Book Online Europe tours and tickets

We all know that France is the world's most visited country. As a result, choosing which part of the nation to visit first is a little more difficult. France has a maritime climate in the north and a sluggish, hazy Mediterranean environment in the south, owing to its diversity. Some of the Spanish delicacies may be found in its southern cuisine. Furthermore, certain parts of Strasbourg have a German flavor to them rather than a French one.

Here is a list of 5 of France's most beautiful and renowned tourist destinations. Continue reading to find the hidden gems!

  1. Arcachon Bay

Arcachon Bay is located on France's western coast. This location is within an hour's drive from the vibrant metropolis of Bordeaux. It is known as 'Le Bassin,' meaning the Basin, and is located on the edge of the Landes de Gascogne Regional Natural Park. The inhabitants have given it this name. The towns and villages here have their own microclimate and are shielded from the worst of the Atlantic storms. Most people are familiar with Arcachon Bay because of the Dune du Pilat, Europe's highest sand dune. It stands at a height of approximately 110 meters above sea level! Andernos-Les-Bains, located on the basin's inner border, is a charming town that is well worth a visit.

  1. Mont-Saint Michel

Mont-Saint Michel is one of the most magnificent sights in the country, and it is perhaps one of the most memorable pictures of the country. It is only a bit out to sea, with its medieval monastery perched on top, and its placement is completely fairytale-like. More than three million individuals visit this island community each year. The approach is one of the town's top vantage spots. Take advantage of the longest visiting window and visit this location while the tides are in your favor.

  1. Pink Granite Coast

The Pink Granite Coast, or Côte de Granit Rose as it is known locally, is located in northern Brittany and runs for more than 30 kilometers. The Ploumanac'h village is a good place to start your journey. Although it is not a particularly attractive settlement, it is the greatest place from which to explore the rose-tinted shoreline. This part of France is one of the most magical and surprising places you'll ever visit. The purest water you'll ever see, a moderate coastal environment awash in the brilliant colors of pink rocks, and a stunning mix of golden sand and wildflowers are all available here.

  1. The Lavender Fields of Provence

From June through August, rows, and rows of lavender plants may be seen carpeting the rolling hills of Provence. These rows go on for as long as the eye can see. You'll notice a faint yet delicious aroma before you ever see them. This magnificent area is more likely to be noticed around Mont Ventoux and the Luberon Natural Park, so if you're visiting Provence, make sure you're based between these two spots.

  1. Palace of Versailles

The Château de Versailles and the Versailles Gardens are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites and must-sees in France. I guarantee you that the 18th-century gilded palace of Louis XIV will not disappoint you; in fact, it is only once you enter and are within its gates that you begin to understand its magnitude. The Petit Trianon, Marie Antoinette's private apartment, and the Grand Trianon, a lower size palace, are both noteworthy.
