Every stone, every city, every village, every name of France speaks of history, speak of art, speak of civilization.
It is the greatest European nation after Russia, that however it is double-continental and Ukraine; it is the fourth world power of the industrial period, but the French grandeur is without epoch and without age.
Its capital, Paris, is perhaps the most famous city of the world, over that one of the most beautiful in absolute, of the richest of history, of art, of charm, of fashion, of commerces... and the list could continue for a long time.
In the Parisian area around 1/6 some whole French population lives and not only for this the capital is the symbol and the soul of France.
But if France didn't have Paris however it would be a nation of first plan and full of charm and of beauties.
In fact every angle of France has a particular attraction: on the sea, on the channels, along the rivers, in the mountains, in the "sleeping" city of province, in the villages, also in the most lost, even in the islands.
Among the thousand French destinations I would want to signal someone of it among the less known ones: Riquewihr in Alsace; Etretat in Normandy; the Belle Ile in Bretagne; Beaune in Bourgogne....
