Visiting France for the first time? You're not alone. France is the most visited country in the world with 83 million tourists every year. It might be the beautiful French language that allures most visitors or the je ne sais quoi of the French way of life that people admire. Though most people think of Paris as the top destination in France, the country offers beaches, ski resorts, sea ports, and rural country life. So while many people plan their trip to France to visit Paris, many people also visit the French Riviera located in the southeast of France.

From the famous Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre in Paris to the breathtaking castles in the Loire Valley, taking a trip to France can be the trip of a lifetime full of some of the world's top places to visit in France. Just be sure to grab a baguette and a bottle of wine before you head under the Eiffel Tower to watch the sunset in Paris and fall in love like millions of other visitors have with the region of romance.
