France

France occupies the top spot in the field of tourism with a whopping 89 million annual visitors (and this doesn’t even count domestic tourism). This proud nation invokes an array of different sentiments and emotions. The cultural, natural, culinary and linguistic variety are almost unparalleled and it’s history has often been synonymous with the history of continental Europe as a trend-setter and beacon of sophistication and enlightenment. From the wine countries of Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne to the exclusivity of Cotè Azure and Provence in the south all the way up to breathtaking Normandy and Bretony in the north passing through the alpha city that is Paris (the most visited city in the world). France has so much almost too much to offer.
