Cultural hotspots in France

29 Entries

It's a fact that you'll never be short of things to do in France whether you're after museums, festivals, sports or shows. One of Europe's top spots for culture, just a small taster of the things you could do is, take in the views from the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris before sampling a chocolate-smothered crêpe across the street. Wander the Old Port of Marseilles with its centuries-old forts and Roman abbey. Browse the colourful Cours Saleya Market in Nice, packed with flowers, local produce and antiques. Admire the masterpieces of the Palais des Beaux-Arts in charming Lille and step back in time by standing amidst the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière in Lyon. Stay in a hostel in any town or city in this cultural spectacle of a country and you'll become lost in its atmospheric squares, engrossing museums, copious sites of historical significance and delightful boutiques.
