Though it needs no introduction. Paris, France’s capital, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Countless books have been devoted to the French capital and one could read every page from front to back without getting close to exhausting all the wonders of the fabled City of Lights.
The history of France itself is inscribed in each of the city’s many monuments and richly diverse neighborhoods. From the Eiffel Tower to the Champs-Elysees, and from Montmartre to Menilmontant and the Latin Quarter, Paris is overflowing with historic treasures, cultural landmarks and architectural delights. With so many different museums and things to see and do, there is always something for everyone.
The ultimate symbol of French culture, and a global capital of fashion and luxury goods, Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Visitors making the trip for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™ will be spoiled for choice, as they look to fill their time between matches. (Host city information via FIFA.)
DEAUVILLE (LE HAVRE)
Located in the Heart of the Normandy Region. This seaside resort can be enjoyed all year round.
Through the years the town has managed to develop harmoniously, preserving its historic, architectural and cultural heritage, while at the same time keeping step with an ever-changing tourist sector.
Indeed, only two hours from Paris, this rendez-vous of elegance and art de vivre promises visitors a complete change of scenery, with its many turn-of-the-century villas, traditional half-timbered houses, colorful sun umbrellas on the beach and famous Promenade. (Host city information via FIFA.)
Mont Saint Michel
Like something right out of Game of Thrones, Mont Saint Michel is a magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery. It’s among France’s most stunning sights. Set in the mesmerizing bay where Normandy and Brittany merge, the island draws the eye from great distances. (info via Normandy-tourism)
On our way back from Deauville we will stop by Giverny. Welcome to the world of the painter and gardener Claude Monet. For over 40 years, until his death in 1926, Giverny was his home, his site of creation and his masterpiece. A world of senses, of colors and of memories, the house in which the artist and his family lived notably contains his studio-sitting room and his exceptional collection of Japanese prints. The gardens are composed of the Clos Normand, with its flowerbeds, and the Water Garden, planted with oriental vegetation and weeping willows, its Japanese bridge painted green and its waterlilies. (Information via Fondation-monet)
