Everyone has their favourite areas, however I think the South of France is absolutely incredible! You could spend an entire month ticking things off the list while in this country, from seeing everything there is to see in Paris such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, to relaxing next to the French Riviera or skiing on Mont Blanc. Verdon Gorge is also worth a shout-out. Of course, behind the capital, you might want to have a look at my list of things to do in Marseille, considering how popular it is for tourists from all over the globe. Marseille certainly packs a powerful reputation for the glitz and glam, with some of the worlds wealthiest coming here in the summer months. With a population of 67 million people, they have almost an identical amount to the UK, with 12 million more than England. They also have the greatest anthem in the world, which everyone ends up humming along to at every sporting event they are competing in, even if you’re playing them. The home of romance and love, France has a strong reputation for its sexy accent and glamorous setting, making it the wedding proposal hub of the world. You might want to brush up on your French language skills before arriving, as from my experience they aren’t always happy to speak English even if they are serving you. I always think you should make an effort with the language where ever you go, but no where more so than France. Let’s just hope you don’t suffer from Paris Syndrome.
