AFAR Guide to France
Wherever you find yourself in France– looking up the intricate facade of Notre Dame or wandering around the coastline of Nice –it's hard not to be charmed. On every trip embrace the romantic, indulge in the luxurious and chat with a local. If you do, you'll find rainy days are more picturesque, tastes are richer (due to a large dose of butter) and the French are friendlier than you'd imagine.
