Where to go in France?

Next summer my family might plan a trip to France. If we do go, that could help me test out my French. Anyway, what would you recommend me to visit there?

Paris, Nice, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Martinique (6,800 km sw from France)


If I may, La Martinique is 6,800 km southwest from France.


Oops. Thanks very much, Sitesurf!

    Paris, I have been there! Very wonderful. Poor cab service though. Lol! I stayed at the La-defaunce area.


    La Défense.

      Lyon, Strasbourg, Nantes, Bordeaux et Toulouse


      I think Brittany, south of France and Paris are good ideas !


      Yes, Brittany is definitely a must visit.


      What kinds of things are you and your family interested in? France is a very diverse country, and many of our suggestions, while great on their own merits, may not suit the kind of trip you're looking for. Do you want guaranteed sun and / or beaches? Do you want culture, museums, art galleries, festivals, theatre? Do you want a city or a countryside trip, or would you prefer to visit a small town? Are you interested in cuisine, wine tours, cycling, walking, mountain sports, surfing, sailing, or do you just want a quiet place to relax? Anyway, I note that your profile says you're 14, so whether you will have any say on where your parents decide to go is another matter, isn't it.


      So many choices! I enjoyed Strasbourg, Paris, Mont St Michel, Brittany, Provence area. I suggest choosing one area and explore deeply instead of trying all the hot spots. I also suggest mixing famous places with lesser known areas in the region to get a sense of the country. The activities you choose will depend on the ages of your family. Now a days the internet makes it so much easier to research. If you can't get to France, Quebec is a good alternative as they use french 1st and all the signs are in french. Using Duolingo helped me be able to read and understand all the signs :)


      Absolutely agree. France is so big, so different, it is impossible to visit all places in one time. In addition to places already mentioned in the post above, I would suggest to visit Alsace, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Cassis, Corse island. Bon voyage!
