FRANCE

SOULFUL ILLUMINATION IN (AND AROUND) THE CITY OF LIGHT

There's a reason why France makes its way onto just about everyone's life "to do" list. With its intimate hilltop villages, enchanting coastal beaches, majestic castles, and, of course, its most famous capital city, France is simply one of those few world destinations that can't be overlooked.

If Paris is your main focus, consider a stay in the heart of the city. The Champs-Elysees is full of romance, tree-shaded cafes, and an unprecedented lineup of luxury goods. Visit the Louis Vuitton flagship, Cartier, Hermes, Bally, and more.

Make your way to the Ile de la Cite to see arguably the world's most famous cathedral, Notre Dame. Of course, what would a trip to Paris be without an expedition to the beautiful (and quite large) Louvre art gallery and museum?

But if you're worried the wonders of Paris will lead to sore feet, consider a cruise along the Seine, where the rich history will unfold before your eyes - and you won't even need to take a step.

Of course France offers so much more than the City of Light. Many France holidays begin and end elsewhere. Choose, for example, to escape to the French Riviera and the charming village of Biot, which is just a short drive from the flower markets and sun-drenched beaches of Nice and the glitz and glamour of Cannes.
