France fashions a romantic ideal. It’s the cliché of a lovers' stroll by a moonlit river. It’s looking for luxury in the little things, like an endless dinner where conversation flows. It's the sophisticated stereotype of opulent palaces and a glamorous coast. France feeds the fantasy with amorous arts and the finest food, with sparkling cities and bucolic towns. Allez, make it your reality.

FRANCE TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatThe clichés: freshly baked breads and croissants, all the cheese, all the pastries, delicacies like foie gras and traditional dishes like pot-au-feu (French beef stew).
What to bring backA little luxury if you can afford it (Hermes? Louis Vuitton? Limoges porcelains? Champagne?), perfume, and local wine.
Fun FactFrance’s list of achievements and inventions is infinite—the country gave us the cinema, the bicycle, the stethoscope, and champagne. But the country also has a silly side complete with bizarre laws, like one declaring it illegal to name your pig Napoleon or to fly a UFO over the vineyard of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Pourquoi pas!
