Close your eyes and picture France — what's the first thing that pops into your head? I'll venture a guess and say it's the Eiffel Tower and a variety of bread products . . . . Oh, and maybe this portrait of French President Emmanuel Macron (same).
But France is so much more than that! It's lavender fields and stony beaches. Castles, canals, and soaring mountains. Bright blue waters, medieval monasteries, and shockingly cheap Rosé. Every region of this country has its own character and charm, and if you've got the holiday time and funds to journey around France (via car or train), you're in for quite a treat. Here's your guide to the ultimate French road or rail trip. On y va!
