France is one of the most visited countries in the world, and a lot of that is because of Paris. The “City of Lights” is widely acknowledged to be one of the most striking and romantic cities in the world, and everyone wants to see it at some point in their life. But Paris is far from the only place that draws people to France. In fact, I really wasn’t crazy about Paris when I visited (see here). It is pretty amazing, but there’s more to France than just Paris.
The South of France, however, I LOVED. The people are way friendlier than Parisians, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s full of beaches and towns that can make for the vacation of a lifetime. You can tour the whole area, pick a town to spend a week in, or venture south after a trip to Paris to catch all of the country’s highlights. Whatever you decide, here are some of the best places to visit in this part of the country.
