Across the country
The first things everyone associates France with are the Mona Lisa, croissants, and the Eiffel Tower. But La République is so much more than that. France is known for its relaxed attitude and enjoyment of life. Even scenically, one of the largest countries in Europe offers a treat for everyone: beaches, hills, mountains, France has a truly varied landscape. Large parts of the country in the north and center are characterized by gentle hilly landscapes, whereas mountains can be found in the south and east, namely the Pyrenees and the French Alps. France is also home to the highest mountain in Europe, the Mont Blanc, whose surroundings offer endless outdoor activities. In the south, the country enchants with beautiful sandy beaches and seashores on the Côte d'Azur. Of course, when in France one simply cannot miss a visit to Paris. The countless museums, restaurants, bars, events, and landmarks offer unlimited entertainment and wonder.
