Best Places to Visit in France

I’ve been to France 8 times, but it wasn’t until my 8th visit that I made it to Paris. While I loved Paris and it lived up to my very high expectations, I like exploring the lesser-known places even more. Without a doubt, my personal highlight was hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc a 170km hike around the massive of the highest peak in Western Europe! Truly an incredible experience! My favourite festival anywhere in the world to-date is the The Festival of Lights in Lyon: This definitely isn’t off the beaten track, but I LOVED it and that’s saying a lot as I don’t like crowds. It’s one of the most unique artistic displays I’ve ever seen!
