Discover France on France.fr a multifaceted destination that distinguishes itself from other European hotspots thanks to its diverse landscape : coastline, mountains, city, country, or even ultra-marine destinations.
This diversity and palette of services provided (transportation, lodging, activities, restaurants) is sure to satisfy all your expectations.
The vivacity of the cultural and artistic offers (capital of fashion, design, festivals...), the richness of historic patrimony as well as its art de vivre à la française (gastronomy and œnotourism) make up an emblematic image of the « Destination France » and contribute to its notoriety.
France regularly welcomes major international events : Euro2016, Ryder Cup 2018, and, we hope, the Olympics in 2024 as well as the Universel Exhibition in 2025.
France.fr will help you organize your stay in France. This site is developed by Atout France, the Agency for tourism development in France, and is available in 17 languages.
