Tour Eiffel, Paris
would like to eat a different cheese every day this year? Or drink a different
wine every day for 450 days? Then head to the number one tourist destination in
the world and join the other 67 million overseas tourists who flock to France
It's really no surprise that France is such a tourism favorite -- after all, it
has all the romance, chateaux, towering mountains and gorgeous beaches
a country needs to attract visitors. It has some of the most architecturally beautiful
cities (and villages) in the world and is home to the arguably the best art museums
in Europe. Anyone who's been to the Louvre can vouch for its immense collection
of famous works of art -- such a huge museum, it's not hard to get lost.
there really a better place to go for business? Between the fabulous food and
the laid-back French lifestyle, you should be thanking your lucky stars. If you're
flying in to Roissy (Charles de Gaulle) airport, a 35-minute train ride from the
heart of Paris, take a few minutes to appreciate the building's architecture.
Probably one of the most well-known airports in the world, Roissy has been featured
in numerous movies, television shows and music videos (U2's "Beautiful Day"
was filmed there).
don't think we even need to go through the list of things to see in Paris -- everyone
knows the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame are must-sees. Make sure
to visit Sacre-Coeur basilica and the surrounding area of Montmartre. The daunting
walk up the steep hill is worth it -- once at the top, you'll be rewarded with
one of the best views in Paris!
